Although useful to operators, it is available for everyone and its operation is as simple as it is effective: through it, in fact, it will be possible read the QRCode (on paper or on display) to verify its authenticity in a few seconds. Once scanned, the information regarding the Green Pass owner (Name, Surname, Date of Birth) will come out. Verification occurs because the app accesses, at least once a day, the platformbut national-DGC, where all the public keys used to sign the "EU Digital COVID Certificate" issued are made available.

Specifically, the verification takes place in this way:

The Certification is requested by the verifier to the interested party who shows the relative QR Code (in digital or paper format).

The Verification C19 App reads the QR Code, extracts the information from it and proceeds to check the qualified electronic seal.

The VerificationC19 App applies the rules to verify that the Certification is valid.

The Verification C19 App graphically shows the verifier the effective validity of the Certification as well as the name, surname and date of birth of the holder of the same.

The interested party, at the request of the verifier, exhibits a valid identity document for the purpose of verifying the correspondence of the personal data present in the document with those displayed by the App.
