The user authentication is very crucial in developing an e-learning system. Emerging standards for distance learning and education influence in a major way the development of e-learning systems. E-learning system must be secured against manipulation from the side of the students and also it protects user's privacy. This paper examines privacy and security issues associated with e-learning. It presents the basic principles behind privacy practices and legislation. Concrete solutions for improving the degree of security achievable are shown. A design of an e-learning user authentication system is introduced. This framework prevents manipulation from the side of the students during learning, thus allowing a reliable control of learning success.
