Validity is to be shortened to nine months

It is still unclear how the shortening of the running time, if decided by the Council of Ministers, will be technically implemented in the apps. In Germany, for example, vaccination certificates can currently be stored digitally in the CovPass and Corona warning apps. The period within which such a certificate is displayed as valid when called up can be adjusted later using an update. Theoretically, the validity of the certification keys on the CovPass server could also be shortened, which were used to sign people’s digital vaccination certificates when they were issued.
