Abstract

One of the major capabilities of blockchain technology is the sharing of data in verifiable ways without losing control of information possession. Issuing and verifying student certifications for higher study applications or job recruitment require many steps that take days to complete and are considered time-consuming. Most universities around the world use centralized systems to control the entire procedure when a graduate applies for a job or postgraduate studies. Applying blockchain technology to certificate verification protocols through a comprehensive architecture provides authenticity and reduces time significantly. In this paper, a framework has been proposed to issue student certifications locally in addition to sharing them across the internet while maintaining control and ownership of the certifications. This framework leverages the advantages of blockchain technology to electronic certification sharing and verification. Applying the proposed blockchain-based certification system in universities will provide low latency for issuing, sharing, and verification of these certifications. The paper presents the proposed blockchain-based framework for e-certification sharing and an evaluation of the framework, which consists of measuring the average time to issue a certificate and transaction latency time.
