Transparent authentication in e-learning

Transparent authentication in e-learning
In the context of on-line assessment in e-learning a problem arises is that someone taking an exam may wish to cheat by handing over personal credentials to someone to take their place in an exam. This differs from authenticating for on-line banking where it is in the user interest to ensure safe and correct authentication. Our proposed solution is to digitally sign the student work by embedding voice samples in the exam paper at regular intervals. In this investigation we have demonstrated that transparent steganography can provide an effective mechanism for achieving such a good goal

Abstract

In the context of on-line assessment in e-learning a problem arises is that someone taking an exam may wish to cheat by handing over personal credentials to someone to take their place in an exam. This differs from authenticating for on-line banking where it is in the user interest to ensure safe and correct authentication. Our proposed solution is to digitally sign the student work by embedding voice samples in the exam paper at regular intervals. In this investigation we have demonstrated that transparent steganography can provide an effective mechanism for achieving such a good goal
