Safe Exam Browser Sample


Concept

Safe Exam Browser is a web browser environment to carry out e-assessments safely. The software turns any computer temporarily into a secure workstation. It controls access to resources like system functions, other websites, and applications and prevents unauthorized resources being used during an exam.

General Features

  1. Managed web browser, which can be configured using encrypted configuration files
  2. Using special hyperlinks, SEB can be started from other web browsers and reconfigured individually per exam
  3. Fullscreen mode or multiple browser windows which can be resized (without any navigation elements), browser tabs on iPad
  4. VM detector: SEB detects whether it is running on a virtual machine or a jailbroken device and can refuse to start up
  5. URL filter to allow accessing only specific web sites, pages or resources
  6. Certificate pinning to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks on the connection to exam servers
  7. Spell checking and dictionary lookup is disabled, can optionally be allowed
  8. Built-in connection to Moodle, ILIAS, OpenOLAT, Inspera Assessment, and others, can be used with basically any web-based examination system
