Disclosed is a method, a device, and/or a system of authentication of a user and/or a device through parallel synchronous update of immutable hash histories. In one embodiment, a computer-implemented method for authentication includes receiving an identity claim from a device that includes a device root hash of a hashed history of the device, referred to as a device hastory. Data of a user profile associated with the device that includes a profile root hash of a profile hastory is retrieved. The device root hash and the profile root hash are compared and determined to be identical to verify an identity of a user and/or a device. A transaction record is generated and deposited as a new block in both in the profile hastory and device hastory. A new profile root hash is computed to evolve the identity of the user profile for a prospective authentication request.
