ABSTRACT

In the last decade, the use of biometrics has had a lot of success applied to the security and video surveillance tools. Due to that, facial authentication has a preferred place in continuous development with the purpose of getting the identification and verification of the user. Specifically, the use of facial authentication in virtual online environments is so important in order to improve the security mechanism in e- Learning systems, mostly in the field of online exams into a virtual platform. Particularly, the authentication of an user inside a LMS is essential for the institutions or universities to make sure that the student is who he says he is (the correct user). This article focuses on analysing and comparing the different facial authentication systems to verify the students when they use e-learning platforms, detailing the costs and the features of every system listed.
