    Electronic examinations are those examinations performed through a computer where questions and answers are computer files rather than sheets of paper. The temptation of using electronic examinations as a distance learning evaluation tool is obvious. However, security concerns must be considered. In this paper, we present a secure electronic examination protocol. Using wireless technology, we propose a trade-off solution between examination security (in terms of examination result correctness) and examination flexibility.
