Putting the decentralised nature of the revolutionary Blockchain technology to use, Kerala Blockchain Academy (KBA) has developed a solution to make certificates issued by academic institutions including universities tamper-proof, which will help end tampering and forgery of documents pertaining to academic qualifications.

KBA develops Blockchain enabled technology to issue academic course certificates which cannot be tampered with or forged

KBA, an initiative by the Government of Kerala under the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management – Kerala (IIITM-K), is the first government academic and research institution to come up with a completely in-house solution that will ensure complete authenticity of course certificates.

The decentralized and tamper-proof nature of blockchain makes it nearly impossible for the data to be modified or faked. This solution is developed with a strong commitment to make the certification process transparent while respecting the candidate’s privacy.

To start with, the technology will be used for course certificates of various training programmes conducted by KBA. Subsequently, it will be passed on to universities and other academic institutions.

“This technology connecting physical certificates and its digital equivalent through a tamper-proof digital ledger and a simple QR code-based process is a transformative approach for fighting fraud in certificate issuance and management”

“This technology connecting physical certificates and its digital equivalent through a tamper-proof digital ledger and a simple QR code-based process is a transformative approach for fighting fraud in certificate issuance and management,” said Dr. Asharaf S, Professor-in-Charge, KBA.

Any employer or individual can simply scan the QR code printed on certificates with smart phone and verify the authenticity with a single touch. Every certificate has an international identity with the unique timestamp and block number. The technology is dubbed as a radical move in bringing more value to the course certificates in the global job marketplace as the KBA graduates can easily get their certificate’s credibility verified with the potential employer using a simple process.
