BLOCKCHAIN BASED CERTIFICATE VERIFICATION USING ETHEREUM AND SMART CONTRACT

C.Roopa, R.C.Suganthe,N.Shanthi.

Abstract
Blockchain technology allows the formation of a distributed record of a digital event in a decentralized manner where no third-party controls data and related transactions. This technology was used early for value transfer but now it has a wide range of applications in various fields such as healthcare, banking, the internet of things and many more. In the education sector, it gives numerous chances for decentralized management of records in educational institutions. Certificates distributed in colleges or universities are mostly hard copy. Students submit these certificates while applying for jobs at public or private sectors, where all these certificates are needed to be verified manually, it is very time-consuming process. There can be incidents where students may produce the fake certificate and it is difficult to identify them. This problem of fake academic certificates has been a longstanding issue in the academic community. There are chances that some may have produce the certificate which is not legit and that may get unnoticed by the verifier during the verification process. Because of the above situation, ineligible candidate will get a chance illegally. The key issues in Certificate verification for Workplace, banks and other businesses are in storage, retrieval and access to data with security. Blockchain technology can be enforced to solve these troubles in storing and accessing of data. This technology provides a common shared platform from where to store, retrieve and access documents securely. The very nature of the technology is in the distributed, shared, open ledgers, verifiable by all. This problem can be solved by storing the digital certificates on the Blockchain.

Key words: Decentralization, Smart Contract, Ethereum, Ledger, Interplanetary File System
