The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Board collaborated with the Centre of Excellence for Blockchain Technology of National Informatics Centre under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to create the ‘Academic Blockchain Documents‘ software. This Tech is oursued for accetance to go completely paperless and keep class 10 and 12 board results safe and far from tempering.
The CBSE has introduced blockchain technology to go completely paperless and keep class 10th and 12th board results safe and tamper-proof. The last three years exam result of CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has been secured using blockchain and more will be added.
Speaking to ANI news, CBSE Director of Information and Technology Antriksh Johri said that “Blockchain implementation has been done for CBSE. Earlier we introduced Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine learning (ML) for affiliation systems. Here, the data is linked and stored with cryptographic security so that it is immutable and traceable.”
He further added that “This will serve as a single source of truthful data for verification for students going for higher education or employment.”
Why CBSE Introduces Blockchain Technology to go paperless for securing Board Exam documents?
The data of the last three years starting from 2019 has been recorded in this and the other data of previous years will be uploaded gradually. In 2016, CBSE was the first to develop its own academic repository named “Parinam Manjusha“.
How Blockchain Storage Works?
Blockchain relies on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). The DLT acts as a decentralized database of information about transactions between various parties. Operations fill the DLT in chronological order and are stored in the ledger as a series of blocks. An interconnected chain is formed between blocks with each one referring to the block before it, thus creating a blockchain.
In blockchain storage, files are first broken apart in a process called sharding. Each shard is copied to prevent loss of data should an error occur during transmission. The files are also encrypted with a private key that makes it impossible for it to be viewed by other nodes in the network.
The replicated shards are distributed among decentralized nodes all over the world. The interactions are recorded in the blockchain ledger, allowing the system to confirm and synchronize the transactions across the nodes in the blockchain. Blockchain storage is designed to save these interactions forever and the data can never be changed.
In Simple words, Blockchain technology stores data in a distributed ledger with the ownership of all the stakeholders. The data is recorded in the chain and replicated at all the locations in the distributed network of Blockchain nodes, eliminating any need for third-party verification.
The data is then linked and stored with cryptographic security making it immutable and traceable, ensuring the maximum security of the stores data.
