That's exactly what nobody is addressing. It may work at places like an airport but nobody is going to bother checking if the person with the certificate is the person who's details are in the certificate. That's if anyone even bothers checking if the certificate is real. Other countries have shown how completely ineffective this is and they have way better technical expertise and policing.Wait. Will we have to produce our ID alongside the vaccine certificate???(Otherwise how will they know we are who we say we are?)
I’ve lived in this era before and it did not end well)
They will need to have a webservice which will allow the scanner to validate it to do that. But like masks and the temperature scanning business, the government just wants the theatre of doing something, so I doubt they would ever set it up.So how trivial is it to create a fake one then? Aren't they just checking that id from scanning QR code matches your id book?
I thought the webservice wasn't happening? That they were just scanning the QR code with no link back to the database itself?They will need to have a webservice which will allow the scanner to validate it to do that. But like masks and the temperature scanning business, the government just wants the theatre of doing something, so I doubt they would ever set it up.
“The QR code will have cryptographic signature linked to public key infrastructure (PKI) to prevent any fraudulent production of vaccination cards,” explained Wolmarans.
Eskom is Eskom.There is the odd scenario where, say someone has a good idea about how this is being implemented, can brute their way into 'bricking' the system. I am sure several penetration attacks will be launched at this system, though within a lab environment. Hashes are hashes, computers are computers.

6. Data transfer
Anonymised data will be transferred to the NDOH database for reporting. No personal data will be transferred from the EVDS, without the required legislative provisions to do so.
Incorrect. There's actually nothing stopping you from crossing the road and cars are even expected to stop for you. You can ride a car without a license. You have to pay to use public transport but don't need a pass, passes ended with apartheid. You can enter any private property where the owner gives you permission but the state is trying to dictate against that now. Actually not having restriction wrt private property would go against individual freedoms. Guess what though, universities are not private property unless it's Sol-Tech as they are state funded. The constitution applies and the constitution is against forced medical procedures so I look forward to the regarding the court cases.
You don't need one. Everyone knows someone that's been vaccinated so just use theirs. This is even better as you can keep downloading a new one once you have their details.
