Remote Proctoring Device

A single device which integrates the hardware and software components needed to conduct an examination in the currently implemented system, which will provide a seamless process for the proctors and students involved in an examination.

Let's take a walk through Connexa

The Technology We Use


The device on the student's side is capable of capturing the video and audio stream from students continuously even incase of a power failure.

The proctor will be able to monitor the video and audio streams captured from all the students facing an examination through the browser application in the proctor's side.

High-level system overview

Method used to ensure secure video/audio streaming:

HTTPS protects the user from “Man-in-the-Middle” attacks where hackers can use vulnerabilities in public networks to steal data transmitted to the viewer. Using HLS encryption to mask a user's connection with the website can prevent this sort of attack.

Technology stack

The system consists of three main endpoints:

  • Web browser in Proctor's end
  • Desktop application in Student's end
  • Database and server application hosted on the Cloud

We ensure security using 3 main methods

Security is a key concern in our product since we deal with highly sensitive data related to examinations and personal security. We ensure security using 3 main methods:

  • Isolation
  • Encyrption
  • Authorization and authentication

Encryption in Server and Database

The secure MongoDB, Atlas cluster ensures secure data encryption both at transit and rest using TSL and AES-256 standards

Encrypting locally stored videos

To ensure that students or any other third party cannot tamper locally stored recordings, they are encrypted using AES-256. Node.js's built-in cipher class File-encrypter is used to encrypt the recordings.AWS Key Management Service is used to control and manage the encryption keys.

Encryption in Jitsi-Meet server

Jitsi-Meet provides end-to-end and hop-to-hop encryption for multiparty conferences. The meeting rooms are password protected and ephemeral.
