Not impossible to fake, I'm sure, but they're easily verified.
Provable verification nowadays means Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA). Otherwise, it is not "provable" verification but more "cargo-cult" verification. If you cannot verify, you could as well just admit it, instead of pretending that you can. We do not need more security theatre.

It's like with banks. They do have equipment to check the verification elements in dollar bills. However, they cannot verify passports, id cards, driving licenses and other such documents. It is make-believe. They are not capable of verifying, because provable verification brings us back to ECDSA, of which the lambda bank staff does not even know the existence. So, bankers cannot verify, not even to save themselves from drowning. Why should we expect school staff to be able to verify?

The problem is not the checks. The problem the complete disregard shown by school owners and administrators for the duty of care their schools, as a part of the community, are obliged to provide to children. Cost, difficulty, ignorance. All shithouse excuses for putting children at risk if you ask me.
The problem ARE the checks. Unless they are provable, or at least falsifiable, all these checks just represent a ridiculous cargo cult, aka, security theater. Why would we need substantially more bullshit?
so this leaves us where?? its a dog and pony show? or a weeding out process?

Hi everyone,

Please help. I am trying to get a Police Clearance Certificate for Cambodia. The issues are, I am no longer staying there, I didn’t register with the songkat at the time I was living there, I didn’t know I had too, and the organisation I worked for never instructed me to do so. In addition I no longer have my entry visa stamp, as it was put into an energy passport that I no longer have.

What should I do? Come to Cambodia to try and speak to the local sangkat, Phone my local Cambodian embassy to see if that can help, or try to find a way around having to supply the document?

I know the official information says that people living outside the country can appoint someone to process the paperwork, but I don’t have most of documents needed, for example, a residency certificate and entry visa stamp. I also don’t have evidence from a tenancy agreement that I stayed there. Despite living and working in Cambodia for 4 years,

Any help would be great.
