Multi-factor authentication schemes have emerged as alternatives to single-factor authentication schemes with the aim
of improving the security. Factors like passwords, biometrics smart/id cards have been used in combinations in addition to mobile OTPs for enhancing security. Conventional authentication schemes are inadequate for security-critical applications like financial transaction, online examinations,etc. The paper focuses on discussing a multi-factor authentication scheme specifically designed for securing online examination services without comprising user-friendliness. The experimentation results clearly brought out the applicability of the scheme in real time with fine-tuning of network related parameters.
