Enhanced Security for Online Exams Using Group Cryptography
Jung, I. Y.; Yeom, H. Y.
IEEE Transactions on Education, v52 n3 p340-349 Aug 2009
While development of the Internet has contributed to the spread of online education, online exams have not been widely adopted. An online exam is defined here as one that takes place over the insecure Internet, and where no proctor is in the same location as the examinees. This paper proposes an enhanced secure online exam management environment mediated by group cryptography using remote monitoring and control of ports and input. The target domain of this paper is that of online exams for math or English contests in middle or high school, as well as exams in online university courses with students in remote locations.(Contains 9 figures.)
