Open source release of NZ COVID Tracer

Last updated 9 December 2020

Following the NZGOAL-SE standards for open sourcing government software, the Ministry of Health has started the process of open sourcing the NZ COVID Tracer app.

Repositories that have been released on Github:

We encourage interested software developers and security researchers to inspect the code.

The Ministry of Health does not currently have capacity to handle pull requests and issue reports on GitHub, but we are happy to correspond through [email protected].

Any reports of security issues should be reported to [email protected] according to the Ministry of Health responsible disclosure guidelines.

The app has been released under the AGPL license. Works derived from it must also be released under the same license.

We intend to release other system components over time to continue building trust in the integrity of the NZ COVID Tracer app.
