Blockchains are the most important technological innovation since the internet or a solution looking for a problem, wherein the decentralized ledger consists of linked batches of transactions known as blocks and an identical copy is stored on many computers. Based on a distributed, peer-to-peer (P2P) topology, blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT) allows data to be stored globally on thousands of servers – while letting anyone on the network see everyone else’s entries in real-time. That makes it difficult for one user to gain control of, or game, the network.
For businesses, however, blockchain holds the promise of transactional transparency – the ability to create secure, real-time communication networks with partners around the globe to support everything from supply chains to payment networks to real estate deals and healthcare data sharing.

BISET – Blockchain & IoT based Safety Training Kiosk
Apart from Self Check Kiosk, XIPHIAS also manufactures Safety Training Kiosk called BISET (Blockchain & IoT based Safety Training Kiosk). BISET is the world’s first Robotic Kiosk for Online Safety Training powered by Blockchain & IoT, which can be used by any organization where employee’s security know-how is of critical importance. The entire solution will be based on the most unique non-tokenized private Blockchain providing strong authentication and data encryption for the enterprises ensuring Cyber Security. Not only this, it will also issue a hashed certificate on passing the course using blockchain.
The concept is based on Blockchain Technology, whose distributed database is running on multiple servers that continually checks the security and integrity of each record. Blocks chained by hash values and incentivized proof of work provide a foundation for distributed trust in the blockchain. Each block is time stamped and linked to previous blocks, using cryptography to ensure the data is immutable and tampered -proof.
Contrary to the most popular use case, blockchain technologies don’t only secure financial transactions – in fact, they can be used to track and verify any kind of digital asset, as well as code or smart contracts such as medical records, and in our case examination records.
XIPHIAS addresses the basic problems of integrity, honesty, consideration, accountability and transparency in the training and certification system. It redefines the way we take the online courses by providing a trusted mechanism of managing the details of the candidates as well as the examination. All the information is secured using cryptographic techniques and stored in a private blockchain which can be accessed only through a key thus ensuring that the data has not been tampered and is immutable.
By rendering a hashed certificate at the completion, we ensure that no one can make copies of the certificates and thus we safeguard the authenticity of the course and the organization.
This innovation will benefit many industries that would want to impart any training to their employees. To name a few, it can be any security training, management training, subject training, induction training, public speaking training, PR training which the organization wants the employees to undertake as per policies and industry standards.
