About Us

MagnaCerta was founded by a group of technology veterans that saw a need for a mechanism that allows individuals to prove their health status. Our decades-long experience enabled us to create a solution that is innovative while being practical, and inclusive

We are headquartered in Austin, TX, while also having a highly distributed team that spans multiple continents.

CommonPass Partnership

The Commons Project, The World Economic Forum and a broad coalition of public and private partners have collaborated to launch CommonPass and the CommonTrust Network, a globally-interoperable platform for people to document their COVID-19 status (health declarations / diagnostic tests / vaccinations) to satisfy country entry requirements, while protecting their health data privacy.

The CommonPass framework is already being adopted by an increasing number of countries and international airlines providing a globally connected infrastructure. MagnaCerta is a proud partner of this initiative, working in tandem to issue digital health certificates that are fully integrated and interoperable with CommonPass.
