总部位于英国的ZAKA是第三个获得ID2020认证的数字身份组织

2020-6-29 12:26

 

昨天ID2020宣布,总部位于英国的ZAKA是第三个获得ID2020认证的数字身份组织。ZAKA在发展中国家有应用,但也是一种COVID-19解决方案。


ID2020联盟得到了埃森哲(Accenture)、微软(Microsoft)、洛克菲勒基金会(Rockefeller Foundation)和万事达(Mastercard)等知名机构以及美慈(Mercy Corps)、Kiva和Gavi(疫苗联盟)等非营利组织的支持。其宣言承认,超过10亿人无法证明自己的身份,因此无法获得基本服务。


ID2020去年公布了它的认证计划,ZAKA是继Kiva协议和Gravity在三月份获得同样的认证后第三个获得“良好ID”的认证。


要获得认证资格,解决方案提供商必须订阅ID2020的可移植性、持久性、隐私和用户控制原则。然后技术委员会根据功能需求列表对应用程序进行审查,ID2020将其称为“技术需求”。接受认证并不意味着该技术已经在技术层面上进行了审计。相反,审查是在功能级别上进行的。


这些要求包括38项标准,例如能够脱机操作、避免限制使用特定设备(如智能手机)以及密钥恢复的可信任托管人。


ZAKA首席执行官兼联合创始人尼克•梅森表示:“ID2020年之前对我们公司的严格评估,应该会让潜在合作伙伴相信,我们的解决方案符合全球标准,推进为所有人带来‘良好ID’的重要使命。”


ZAKA的使命是通过提供包容性的数字身份,“确保任何人,使用任何电话,可以在任何时间使用任何服务”。ID2020指的是ZAKA开发的一项应用程序,该程序帮助在土耳其的难民获得可验证的数字身份。该项目与联合国开发计划署和土耳其外交部合作。它在卢旺达也有解决办法和存在。


但目前迫切需要COVID-19的应用。ZAKA有一个新的解决方案,旨在为企业提供隐私兼容的应用程序。它包括一个租户监控模块,可以在进出建筑物时扫描二维码。如果有人在大楼中检测出阳性,匿名用户会收到通知。到目前为止,纽约大学的两个院系都在使用它。


有一长串COVID-19解决方案。其中最引人注目的是Covid资历倡议,一个是国际商会(International Chamber of Commerce)和通用航空(GE Aviation)针对旅游业的倡议。

 

Yesterday ID2020 announced that UK-based ZAKA was only the third digital identity organization to receive ID2020 certification. ZAKA has applications in the developing world but also a COVID-19 solution. 

The ID2020 Alliance is backed by big names such as Accenture, Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation and Mastercard as well non profits including Mercy Corps, Kiva and Gavi, the Vaccines Alliance. Its manifesto acknowledges that over a billion people can’t prove their identity and, as a result, are unable to access basic services.

ID2020 unveiled its certification plan last year, and ZAKA is just the third to achieve the mark of a “good ID” after Kiva Protocol and Gravity were given the same recognition in March.

To qualify for certification, the solution provider has to subscribe to ID2020’s principles of portability, persistence, privacy and user control. A technical committee then vets the application against a list of functional requirements that ID2020 refers to as its ‘Technical Requirements‘. Receipt certification doesn’t mean the technology has been audited at a technical level. Instead, the review is at a functional level.

The requirements include a list of 38 criteria, such as the ability to operate offline, avoid restricting use to particular devices such as smartphones, and a trusted custodian for key recovery.

“The rigorous evaluation of our company by ID2020 should give prospective partners confidence that our solution is meeting global standards and advancing the vital mission of bringing ‘good ID’ to all,” said ZAKA CEO and Co-Founder Nick Mason.

ZAKA’s mission is “to ensure that any person, with any phone, can access any service, at any time”, by offering inclusive digital identity. ID2020 referred to an application developed by ZAKA to help refugees with verifiable digital identities in Turkey. The project is in partnership with the United Nations Development Program and the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It also has a solution and presence in Rwanda.

But right now, COVID-19 applications are the pressing need. ZAKA has a NewNorm solution that aims to provide privacy-compliant applications for businesses. It includes a module for occupancy monitoring to scan a QR code at the entry and exit to buildings. If someone tests positive in the building, anonymous users receive a notification. So far, it’s being used by two New York University departments.

There’s a long list of COVID-19 solutions. Some of the highest-profile are the Covid Credentials Initiative, one from the International Chamber of Commerce and GE Aviation targeting the travel sector.
