I controls will be made through the app VerificaC19, developed by the Ministry of Health through the Sogei company. The Verification C19 App can be used by “verifiers”, that is, those in charge of controlling the Covid-19 green certifications, in public establishments, offices and in all realities where the vaccination certificate is required according to the latest decree. The app is anyway available for free on all digital stores, so any citizen can download it on their smartphone (either iOs that Android) and try it.

The verifier requests certification from the interested party, who shows the relative QR code (in digital or paper format). The app reads the QR code, extracts the information and proceeds with the authenticity check by verifying the digital signature and then graphically shows the verifier the actual authenticity and validity of the certification as well as the name, surname and date of birth of the holder and its unique identifier. Upon request of the verifier, the holder shows 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. All sensitive data contained in the green pass will not be stored in respect of privacy.
