E-learning has shown significant growth in recent years due to its unavoidable benefits in unexpected situations such as the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Indeed, online exam is a very important component of an online learning program. It allows higher education institutions to assess student learning outcomes. However, cheating in exams is a widespread phenomenon worldwide, which creates several challenges in terms of integrity, reliability and security of online examinations. In this study, we propose a continuous authentication system for online exam. Our intelligent inference system based on machine learning algorithms and rules, detects continuously any inappropriate behavior in order to limit and prevent fraud. The proposed model includes several modules to enhance security, namely the registration module, the continuous students’ identity verification and control module, the live video stream and the end-to-end sessions recording.
