Canada to Test Advancements in Biometrics and Blockchain to Welcome International Travellers

The Government of Canada announced today it will pioneer the testing of the Known Traveller Digital Identity system, a concept that improves security and the seamless flow of people across borders

The Known Traveller Digital Identity utilises biometrics, cryptography and distributed ledger technology to give travellers control over, and the ability to share their information with authorities in advance of travel for expedited clearance, while building trust between public authorities to improve risk and threat detection

The project runs in collaboration with the World Economic Forum, and a prototype – developed with Accenture – was launched today at its 48th Annual Meeting
