Blockchains offer a new public infrastructure for verifying credentials in a manner far more durable, secure, and convenient than relying upon a single authority. Here are just a few reasons to adopt this technology.
Blockchain-anchored records use a global decentralized network for verification, which doesn’t require middlemen to send or verify.
Blockchain verification checks everything about the credential to ensure origin and integrity, all without the need for a vendor.
Empower recipients with permanent digital records they own for a lifetime and verify anywhere.
Make it hard to impersonate records from your organization by signing digital credentials with your organization’s cryptographic signature.
Using a standards-based approach is the only way to ensure the interoperability and longevity of digital records. Initially incubated by MIT and evolving in alignment with the W3C, Blockcerts is the most widely adopted global open standard for anchoring records to any blockchain.
Blockcerts also includes a free open-source mobile app for recipients. Available on both iOS and Android, the mobile app stores, shares, and verifies records from any institution that issues Blockcerts—even if they don’t come from Hyland Credentials.
Managing standards-compliant records at scale is easy with our line of products, built to meet the needs of governments, corporations, and educational institutions. The Hyland Credentials Issuing System allows any organization to easily design their records, import recipient data, issue records, and manage the entire credentialing life cycle.
Implementing or upgrading a digital credentialing program is more than a question of technology. It also requires change management across an institution. Learn more.
