is there a way to manage "allowed" miners in ethereum private chain ?

the idea is to have some sort of access control list of miner addresses which are allowed to seal a block.

in case the above is not possible, maybe there is any way to disable solo mining and allow only pool mining instead ?

how would one approach such scenario ?

You mentioned a private chain on ethereum, Quorum from JP Morgan is a go at that. It's a permissioned, private fork of ethereum.

Also, there is a little bit of a misunderstanding I feel(maybe on my part), if you are talking about a private chain that you manage.

You are in-charge and infact, responsible for providing your own miners.

The official documentation for Ethereum on setting one up is Here.

But I would recommend reading This if you are unsure of the differences and use cases between private and public blockchains.
