CVKey Project helps communities reopen responsibly without compromising privacy during the COVID-19 pandemic

Like everyone around the world, my family and I have been shocked by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and searching for ways to help us all recover from this global crisis. For the past two months, I’ve consulted with former colleagues and leaders in the health, public policy, and tech sectors to create CVKey Project. This 501(c)(3) is on a mission to help communities reopen responsibly without compromising our personal privacy. If we don’t get reopening right, we may see successive waves of infections that force communities back to shelter-in-place. That’s why we’re building a suite of privacy-first, open-source applications to help public health officials, business owners, and community members each play our part in the fight against COVID-19.

A suite of apps for everyone

How it works

Your identity and health data live only on your phone not in the cloud

We deliberated deeply on the privacy architecture underpinning the app suite with input from outside experts. Here is an overview of the technical design. We’ll be publishing a more detailed technical architecture document and inviting more outside experts to provide feedback.

We understand that every day brings new information. We’ve made our tools flexible to evolve with the science and modular so public health officials can craft the solution that best fits your community’s needs.

United against COVID-19

Sweat ‘equity’ has made this project a reality. We’re a team of mostly full-time volunteers with expertise in healthcare, public policy, technology, and privacy. We’ve come together from around the world in just a few short weeks to build this non-profit endeavour. We’re united in the belief that technology paired with public health expertise can help win the fight against COVID-19. And we need more volunteers!

Join us

I look forward to getting back to the day when we can all play basketball again. Until then, stay safe and healthy —
