SITA and Indicio announce a co-innovation agreement to accelerate the development of digital identities

Share

SITA announced a co-innovation agreement with Indicio, the market leader in open-source verifiable data technology and trusted digital ecosystems, to accelerate the development and deployment of digital identities for travel.
As leading companies in their respective domains, SITA and Indicio are driving innovation in open-source, decentralized identity technologies that enable seamless, secure, and privacy-preserving processes in the airport and throughout the entire journey.
The development of digital identities or Digital Travel Credentials (DTC) enables passengers to securely create a digital version of their physical passport in line with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards. The DTC is stored as a verifiable credential in the passenger’s mobile wallet. This means travelers keep control of their personal data and consent to share it as needed with different entities as they travel. Only required passenger data is shared before travel, so passengers arrive at the airport ready to fly with all document checks already completed.
The technology has been built to ensure authenticity and integrity, and ownership can be automatically and repeatedly verified, thereby mitigating the risk of fraud.
