The program is “Excelsior Pass,” and it uses secured technology.

The governor said that this program would prove that you have received the vaccine or have a recent negative covid-19 test. You will use it before entering theatres, stadiums, and various businesses.

This program serves for events like Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center.
The passport was developed with IBM. They tested it during the Brooklyn Nets game at Barclays. The first testing happened on Tuesday night.

How does it work?

It is very similar to the boarding passes. People can have access to them via an application installed on their phones. The application is “Wallet App.”

Every passport has its unique QR code, and it shows the individual’s COVID-19 status.

“The Excelsior Pass will play a critical role in getting information to venues and sites in a secure and streamlined way, allowing us to fast-track the reopening of these businesses and getting us one step closer to reaching a new normal.” –Cuomo said.

Regarding the privacy concerns, you don’t have to worry because the governor’s office explained the situation.

“Robust privacy protections are woven throughout the digital health pass solution, giving individuals a secure, verifiable, and trusted way to maintain control of their personal health information using an encrypted digital smartphone wallet or printed credential. Each participant will be able to determine if they would like to use it -and if so, what passes they wish to use for which purpose -all without sharing their underlying personal data. User data is always kept completely confidential, and participation is voluntary. The QR code only informs the venue if a pass is valid or invalid.”

There will be pressure to use this application as an entrance approval.
