Exploring the use of trusted attribute tokens to enable seamless access to services.
A trusted attribute is a fact that has been verified by a person or organisation so that it is trusted and can be used as a token to transfer that piece of information between people and organisations. Trusted attributes could enable a citizen’s seamless access to local authority services. As an example, a driver’s licence is a trusted attribute that we are probably all familiar with. This research project is about a new form of trusted attribute exchange model that should create, verify and transfer trusted attributes relating to covid-19 automatically on the citizen’s behalf.
