A Multi-factor Authentication Method for Security of Online Examinations
MetadataShow full item record
Security of online examinations is the key to success of remote online learning. However, it faces many conventional and non-conventional security threats. Impersonation and abetting are rising non-conventional security threats, when a student invites a third party to impersonate or abet in a remote exam. This work proposed dynamic profile questions authentication to identify that the person taking an online test is the same who completed the course work. This is combined with remote proctoring to prevent students from taking help from a third party during exam. This research simulated impersonation and abetting attacks in remote online course and laboratory based control simulation to analyse the impact of dynamic profile questions and proctoring. The study also evaluated effectiveness of the proposed method. The findings indicate that dynamic profile questions are highly effective. The security analysis shows that impersonation attack was not successful.
