Abstract

Worldwide, increasing trends on distance learning provided by different educational and academic organizations require robust secure environments for carrying out the distance examinations. The security of online examinations is prone to many threats including the local cheaters and outside attackers. Several studies have been carried out in terms of technical, authentication algorithms, and environmental monitoring (supervised or unsupervised). None of these categories can satisfy the required security services to stop candidate cheating during the examination. A robust secure model will be needed to include all three categories in order to provide secure environments for examinee while no manual supervision is required by proctor or professors.
