On 23 May, Ubiqu has announced that they will be working with the US Department of Homeland Security. It concerns a the two-year innovation programme, where six companies will each receive $1.7 million to help develop a system for a secure American digital identity.


Goranov: "Americans are looking for an app for their mobile phone that is open source, and at the same time must be as secure as that chip on a passport. Everyone is building that kind of thing right now, but always together with the US tech giants - who also make the mobile phones. We are decoupling that. And even the US government does find that independence interesting."
