Jelurida: Austrian Government to Utilize Ardor Blockchain for Secure COVID-19 Data Comms Pilot

LUGANO, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / June 18, 2020 / One of Jelurida's flagship products, the Ardor child chain Ignis, will be utilized by a new research project aiming to facilitate secure communication between Austrian authorities, institutions and citizens. Jelurida will participate as a key partner and provide consultancy for the QualiSig project.

Launched by Austrian trust service provider (A-Trust) in partnership with several organizations including the Donau-Universität Krems, QualiSig's goal is to ensure secure communication channels for data exchange between citizens, government agencies, and institutions commissioned by authorities in times of crisis.

With COVID-related communications entailing major data protection concerns, QualiSig was recently awarded a €60,000 grant from the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation, and Technology and the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs after responding to the Corona Emergency Call of the Research Promotion Agency (FFG) for COVID-19 prevention.

QualiSig depends on transparent, encrypted communications with testing personnel, and secure and decentralized storage of data. Data control will be the sole responsibility of citizens, with no special computer skills required.

"The mobile phone signature, with around 1.5 million users, is a widely used tool and has stood for highly secure authentication in the digital world for ten years," said Michael Butz, CEO of A-Trust. "With the QualiSig project, we would like to provide people living in Austria with the necessary security for secure and traceable communication in these difficult times."

The research proposal was written by Thomas Wernbacher and Alexander Pfeiffer of Donau-Universität Krems, and the combination of digital qualified signatures such as the "A-Trust Handy-Signature" and Ardor's Ignis child chain is based on Pfeiffer's current research.

"This project will combine qualified digital signatures based on compliant digital citizenship solutions with blockchain technology having the best of both worlds - government-approved authentication combined with a unique decentralized and encrypted data storage." said Kristina Kalcheva, co-founder of Jelurida.

QualiSig was one of several projects to receive funding after the Austrian Research Promotion Agency's Corona Emergency Call, with 26 million euros made available.
