After the acceptance of blockchain technology, there have been applications which aim to use blockchain in their fields. Various approaches have been proposed in past to build a secure Identity Management (IdM) System. This is a novel systematic literature mapping of IdM in blockchain. This paper provides an extensive review on IdM with emphasis on how the emergence of blockchain has addressed the IdM challenges faced over the years. A thorough study has been done on the existing literature.

Out of the total studied literature, 30 primary studies published from 2009 to 2020 were selected. Through this paper, the researchers will be able to: 1) find out the research trends in IdM using blockchain, 2) understand the challenges in IdM and report whether blockchain can solve the IdM challenges, 3) scrutinize and understand how the different frameworks of IdM would deal with security, integrity and privacy problems, 4) know about initiatives taken for IdM using blockchain, 5) which consensus algorithms are popular among blockchains, 6) know about the research projects going on in the field of IdM using blockchain.
