IEEE innovates student credentials verification with digital diplomas

Challenge

IEEE Poland Section was looking for a solution to issue digital diplomas of winners of National Engineering Innovation Contest in a secure and fully digital manner.

The association aimed to ensure that the documents are protected from forgery and falsification. The credentials also needed to be accessible for students so that they can easily prove their reliable credentials to interested parties like future employers.

Our Solution

Billon’s Blockchain technology solved the problem of fraudulent diplomas and forged education certificates: Our student credentials solution for IEEE allowed for the verification of immutability and integrity of data published on distributed ledger.

Based on our Trusted Document Management solution, we built dedicated front end applications for IEEE. Secure storage of diplomas, easy student access with sharing and retrieval features on web and mobile applications was made available.

Immutable

Immutability of data also stands out as a unique key feature compared to alternatives. Digital management of encrypted diplomas in a reliable and decentralized blockchain architecture allows for protection of personal data against any manipulation.

“Saving entire documents on blockchain provides a durable way to store documents and prevents forgery. Documents are digitally signed and safely stored with access from every place in any time. Documents holders can easily prove their credentials to interested parties like future employers. The Polish Section of IEEE has used Billon’s blockchain solution to publish diplomas for the winners of IEEE Thesis Contest in Poland.”.
