Changing trends indicates that education segment is moving towards technology usage for various tasks including admission process and examination/ assessment process. There are many advantages for conducting examination process with the help of technology. However technology can bring challenging implications in terms of data security, authentication of the users of the system.
Online examination can be tampered by the unauthorized access from the remote location if login credentials are known to the user and it may manipulate data integrity of the process.
Advanced log management can help administrator to check security aspects of the assessment process.
Authorized IP Address for administration: Admin can define list of IP addresses which can be used to access administration and examination management control panel. It would help to block unauthorized access to the system from the hacker or any such user.
Following events related to examination process can be logged to keep track on data security and authorized usage
