    Abstract

    In the recent years many advances have been made in the mechanism of providing online instruction, thus the need for security is growing. To achieve a good level of security, there are many important elements that must be taken into account: authentication, access control, data integrity. In this paper we will try to investigate the information security threats within elearning environments. This paper highlights some key security issues that must be taken into consideration in developing and using an elearning platform. It focuses on vulnerabilities in relation to the application system and we will not cover the vulnerabilities in terms of host and network in elearning.
