ProctorU has a layered authentication process that establishes the candidate’s identity:
- Via a webcam, a live proctor sees the user, checks their photo ID and takes their photo to keep on file. (Please note that if the webcam is moved after its location is approved by the proctor, the proctor will interrupt the session due to security concerns, and the exam will be terminated.)
- Using techniques based on industry-leading fraud protection and banking standards, the user answers challenge questions to validate their identity.
- Sophisticated keystroke analysis software creates a profile for each user.
