This paper presents a scheme for electronic land registration using blockchain technology. A blockchain is a comprehensive approach in industries and academia which need to be protected. The objective is to maintain an open ledger (blockchain) to record the land registration data. Idea is to offer the right person the right ownership. This paper highlights the need of blockchain technology in an application and addresses the need for adopting the mechanisms for confidentiality, authentication, integrity, and non-repudiation which are basics of any security systems referred to as CIA-R in short. This paper discusses the implementation of three blockchains namely People, Land and Transaction with more emphasis on mutual authentication. The application uses the following tools/technology for implementation.
