The development of Information Technology 4.0, which is overgrowing in the world, especially in Indonesia, supports education management which can be assessed as the development of an electronic information management system. Every tertiary education may have quite a lot of data. Likewise, the data created in teaching is like a professional certificate. Lecturers use this certification as a sign of meeting professional performance in their field of expertise. Besides, the certificate is used in the promotion of lecturer rank. However, this often happens that the falsification of a certificate document to be submitted can be falsified and duplicated. Looking at the characteristics of the blockchain, this can be prevented by using blockchain technology on the certificates obtained. The agile method is used in developing the system and also MVC as a system framework. This paper proposes a blockchain-based management system that is distributed with the aim of security and the validity of e-certificates. This certification management system also serves to detect if there is an activity of counterfeiting or manipulating data. Blockchain uses SHA encryption to maintain the integrity of certificate data in digital format.
