CBSE To Go Paperless With Blockchain Technology
In tune with modern times, the Central Council for Secondary Education (CBSE) has introduced blockchain technology to go completely paperless and keep grade 10 and 12 table results safe and tamper-proof.
CBSE Chief Information and Technology Officer Antriksh Johri told ANI: “The blockchain implementation has been done by CBSE. Previously, we introduced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for affiliate systems. that it is immutable and traceable. “
The Board of Directors collaborated with the Center of Excellence for Blockchain Technology at the National Informatics Center of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to create the Academic BlockChain Documents (ABCD) software.
Blockchain technology stores data in a distributed ledger with ownership of all participating stakeholders. Data is recorded in the chain based on consensus among stakeholders and replicated simultaneously to all locations in the distributed network of blockchain nodes.
This eliminates the need for third party verification. The data is then linked and stored with cryptographic security making it immutable and traceable, and ensuring maximum security.
While data for the last three years from 2019 has been recorded there, other data from previous years will be uploaded gradually. In 2016, the council was the first to develop its own academic framework called “Parinam Manjusha”. This network is established with nodes in Bengaluru, Pune and Jaipur. Currently, the certificate chain is managed by NIC in its data centers.
Certificates of results are kept in a distributed manner at different locations involving multiple stakeholders, protecting them from any tampering attempt, as part of this technology, officials said.
“The blockchain implementation was done by CBSE. Previously, we introduced artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for affiliate systems. Here, data is linked and stored with cryptographic security so that they are immutable and traceable, ”said Johri.
