Justification of authenticity of academic credentials is a very clumsy task from a global perspective. For digital certificates to be widely accepted requires secure verifications of the issuer, credential holders, and secure data sharing. Physical verification and a traditional centralized digital system are entirely viable for the current era.

The proposed system recognizes from a credential who is certifying whom. In the proposed Blockchain network, a decentralized application allows users to store their credentials data privately. The evaluation results in proof of the feasibility, security and exhibits the level of performance.
