For states and health authorities that offer QR-code based verified credentials, Bindle can ingest those verified credentials. For states like Indiana that do not offer access to verified credentials, users “self-attest” to the authenticity of their health credentials, digitally signing a legal attestation as to the authenticity of their claim. Here’s the language used for that attestation. For these self-attested health credentials, we explored a number of verification methods including AI, OCR, and manual review and ultimately decided all had flaws.
Every user must associate their Bindle wallet with an immutable photo of themselves. When they create an entry pass and a venue scans that entry pass, the same photo appears so the venue may ensure the person presenting the entry pass is the same person as the one in the photo. Each venue may determine if they require patrons to show additional identification.
