There are several Contact Tracing solutions since the outbreak of SARS COVID-19. All these solutions are localized—specific to a country. The Apps supported by these solutions do not interwork with each other. There are no standards to the proximity data collected by these Apps. Once the international travel restrictions are relaxed, this will become an issue. This paper explores this issue, by addressing one of the key requirements of Contact Tracing solutions. All the current solutions use an Identifier, Proximity Identifier (PID), that anonymously represents the user in the proximity data exchanged. The PID used in these applications varies in their structure, management and properties. This paper first identifies the common desirable properties of PID, including some non-obvious ones for its global application. This identification is essential for the design and development of the Contact Tracing solution that can work across boundaries seamlessly. The paper also evaluates representative solutions from two different design classes against these properties.
