Identity and access management plays an important role in our day to day life. Most of the existing IAM Solution are centralized which raises many issues among which privacy is a critical concern. This paper proposes a privacy protecting, decentralized IAM Solution. Blockchain serves as the backbone of our system which is inherently decentralized and secure. In our solution, none of the sensitive identity information about the user are stored on a centralized server rather is stored on the mobile device assigned to the user. This serves two purposes, protection of privacy of the user and giving the user control of his own identity information.
