    Hi Guys
    Our plan is to use the Students Laptops for E exams.
    But how can we prevent  cheating and manipulating SEB.
    The Main Problem is the Students have their PCS 99 % of the time and we have only a limited amount of time to check for manipulation. ,  so we have to create some sort of check procedure
    got anyone experiences with this Problem?

    ps I Tried some sorts of Manipulation one very  easy one is the manipulation of the MsgHook.dll I downloaded the source  and set some defaults in the read inifile methode this DLL File than replaced the original one.

    Hi,

    We let students use their own laptop and this year we are trying to add the SEB browser as extra security.
    The precondition is that they are in a room with surveillance; using SEB at home is useless :-)

    The best solution with private laptops is to boot the laptop into a live-secure-SEB-environment  from  USB or CD. We are investigating that option. It leaves the student's laptop completely "unmodified". The live environment can be tweaked to block anything but Moodle. A student ran SEB in WINE so a linux live environment is possible.

    For now, we let student install a modified SEB browser with pre-configed ini file but just as you found out it's easy to manipulate. First thing to change is the USER AGENT string because switching the user agent to "SEB" in a firefox add-on is way too easy. Running SEB in a VM is not detected as well.
