What is PEPP-PT?
The purpose of the Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing (PEPP-PT) approach is to provide a common basis for management systems that can be integrated into national public health responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. The PEPP-PT approach is being created by a multi-national European team. It is a privacy-preserving digital proximity-tracing approach, which is in full compliance with GDPR and can also be used when traveling between countries.

Open source strategy
PEPP-PT is preparing a number of source code repositories to be open sourced.
These repositories include:
- Backend services
- Android application core library
- Android application reference implementation
- iOS application core libraries
- iOS application reference implementation
Our goal when open sourcing the code is to be transparent and establish a dialog with the community. Through this transparency and ongoing discussion, our hope is to build trust and ensure any concerns raised are resolved before solutions based on PEPP-PT are released to the general public.
The project does not accept contributions through GitHub at this point.
Details will be described in CONTRIBUTING.
