Blockchain is an innovative distributed ledger technology where verification of data for the transactional records is cryptographically secured against tampering and stored in blocks. Each block contains details of transactions, hash of the previous block, time stamp etc. The chained blocks form a ledger which is stored at every node in the network, thus providing high-availability and avoiding single point of failure. This also enables transparency and gives unique solution to the problem of trust in digital world, leading towards decentralized trust. This technology has a good potential in non-financial sectors such as Governance, healthcare, cyber security, automobiles, media, travel, hospitality, energy, smart cities etc. C-DAC has developed Proof of Existence as a Service (PoEaaS) that helps to verify document ownership without revealing actual data on Blockchain.
C-DAC’s e-Sign service is to offer on-line service to citizens for instant signing of their documents securely in a legally acceptable form. Using this, an Aadhaar holder with registered mobile number with Aadhaar can electronically sign a form/document anytime, anywhere, using any device. C-DAC utilizes service of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) for on-line authentication and Aadhaar e-KYC service.
