THE BUSINESS CHALLENGES

The authenticity of academic certificates is a question of trust. Most of the certificates issued fail to hold their value due to easily available fake certifications. This tampers the reputation of organizations and causes a huge blow to their credibility. A recent survey has shown that 82% of employers and recruiters do not ask for certificates during the interview process due to the fact that those certificates cannot be authenticated.

 

Background verification of potential employees is also a Herculean task for organizations as often, they have to employ external agencies to carry out this process for them. This hinders the trust factor between the candidates and the organization and can incur a major loss of time for both parties. However, these background checks are still a human process and are prone to errors. Our client wanted to build a solution to this problem.

THE BUSINESS REQUIREMENT

The client put forward the requirement of a certification platform that can be used by universities and other certifying organizations to issue authentic certificates. Moreover, recruiters and auditors should be able to verify the authenticity of a certificate on the same platform.

OUR SOLUTION

For our client, we built a blockchain-based platform for the issuance and verification of certifications. The Blockchain-based certification solution offers a tamper-proof infrastructure of trust to uphold the reputation of a certification. The certifying authority, be it a college or a course provider,  can create and issue a digital certificate secured using encryption, on the public network.

 

The students or recipients can access the certificate on this immutable public network and can print out the certificate if they wish. Moreover, prospective employers can verify the certificate using a Decentralized Clearing Number (DCN) to verify the authenticity of the certificate. Since these certificates are stored on a network that audits itself, it is impossible to tamper with the certificates or create fake ones. This solution empowers individuals to hold their own official records and share them directly with others.
