CBSE to use blockchain tech to ensure certificates’ safety



The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence for BlockChain Technology of the National Informatics Centre has come up with a solution to securely record academic documents in a tamper-proof manner. These academic documents can be accessed online in a trusted and verifiable manner.  “CBSE Academic (BlockChain) Documents (ABCD) has been established using blockchain technology to record the certificates in a linked chain structure. The result certificates are kept in a distributed manner at different locations involving multiple stakeholders, protecting them against any attempt of tampering,” said a statement issued by the board. To begin with, the CBSE said it has made available the digitally signed certificates of Class X and XII for years 2019-2021 and will gradually push the certificates of previous years in the coming months.
