About the Interoperability category

This category is intended for topics related to interoperability. The world is globalised, and infectious diseases like have little respect for regional or national boundaries. At the same time, actual deployment of for instance applications such as contact tracing apps tends to happen on a national scale. Since cross-border traffic is inherently a risk factor in virus spreading, interoperability is a key issue to take into consideration for developers and policy makers.

This category is intended to discuss the many challenging aspects of interoperability, ranging from different legal considerations to complex technical issues - but also for instance on security risks caused by externally visible national identifiers broadcast for instance via radio signals.
