A parser and validator for the EU Digital Green Certificate (dgc) a.k.a. greenpass 📲✅

  • Parses the text content of a European Digital Green Certificate (dgc or greenpass) and extract the embedded data
  • Uses a Trustlist of public keys and Elliptic Curve cryptography to be able to validate the signature of a given certificate
  • It's tested against 500+ certificates from the official testing dataset
  • It offers a minimal and easy to use API
  • The certificate data can be easily serialized/deserialized for ease of testing and reporting
  • It embeds the official valueset so that internal IDs (diseases, result types, countries, testing authorities, etc.) can be easily expanded to their descriptive equivalents
  • It reports errors for all fallible operations minimising the opportunity for panicking
  • Offers utilities for easily populate a Trustlist from various types of keys and apis

Current limitations:

  • It only supports EC signatures (see #2)

Usage

To install the latest version of dgc, add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
dgc = "*"

Dgc in action

This library tries to address 2 main use cases:

1. Decode a certificate without validating its signature

let raw_certificate_data = "HC1:NCF:603A0T9WTWGSLKC 4K694WJN.0J$6C-7WAB0XK3JCSGA2F3R8PP4V2F35VPP.EY50.FK8ZKO/EZKEZ96LF6/A6..DV%DZJC0/D5UA QELPCG/DYUCHY83UAGVC*JCNF6F463W5KF6VF6IECSHG4KCD3DX47B46IL6646H*6MWEWJDA6A:961A6Q47EM6B$DFOC0R63KCZPCNF6OF63W5$Q6+96/SA5R6NF61G73564KC*KETF6A46.96646B565WEC.D1$CKWEDZC6VCS446$C4WEUPC3JCUIA+ED$.EF$DMWE8$CBJEMVCB445$CBWER.CGPC4WEOPCE8FHZA1+9LZAZM81G72A62+8OG7J09U47AB8V59T%6ZHBO57X48RUIY03XQOK*FZUNM UFY4D5C S3R9UW-2R*4KZJT5M MIM:03RMZNA LKTO34PA.H51966PS0KAP-KLPH.Q6$KSTJ0-G658RL5HR1";
let certificate_container = dgc::decode(raw_certificate_data).expect("Cannot parse certificate data");
println!("{:#?}", certificate_container);

2. Decode a certificate and validate the signature against a trustlist

let raw_certificate_data = "HC1:NCF:603A0T9WTWGSLKC 4K694WJN.0J$6C-7WAB0XK3JCSGA2F3R8PP4V2F35VPP.EY50.FK8ZKO/EZKEZ96LF6/A6..DV%DZJC0/D5UA QELPCG/DYUCHY83UAGVC*JCNF6F463W5KF6VF6IECSHG4KCD3DX47B46IL6646H*6MWEWJDA6A:961A6Q47EM6B$DFOC0R63KCZPCNF6OF63W5$Q6+96/SA5R6NF61G73564KC*KETF6A46.96646B565WEC.D1$CKWEDZC6VCS446$C4WEUPC3JCUIA+ED$.EF$DMWE8$CBJEMVCB445$CBWER.CGPC4WEOPCE8FHZA1+9LZAZM81G72A62+8OG7J09U47AB8V59T%6ZHBO57X48RUIY03XQOK*FZUNM UFY4D5C S3R9UW-2R*4KZJT5M MIM:03RMZNA LKTO34PA.H51966PS0KAP-KLPH.Q6$KSTJ0-G658RL5HR1";

    e => println!("Could not validate the signature: {}", e),
}

Other examples?

To get started using dgc, see the examples or the docs.

If you clone the repository locally, you can easily run the example files with:

cargo run --example <name of example file>

Data structure

The information is stored inside a certification in a multi-layered format.

This library tries to find a compromise between making the information as accessible as possible and respecting the original structure of the raw data.

The following diagram represents how the information is organised once a certificate has been decoded:
