products for certification bodies

The integrated examination systems developed by infolearn are used by bodies, recognized by the European Union such as the certification body DIPLOMA, and KeyCert (www.keycert.net 2006 to 2009).

Infolearn's integrated examination system consists of the following applications: Admin, Base and Client.
  • Admin is a web application located at the following address: https://www.diploma.edu.gr/admin
  • The Base and Client are stand-alone applications which are installed on the computers of the examination center. Base is installed on a computer which is located outside of the examination class, and Client is installed on all the computers of the examination class.
  • These three applications communicate with each other either via LAN or via internet. The communication is encrypted using the RC4 algorithm. In addition, the communication with the Admin is done via the HTTPS protocol which provides additional security.
  • The examination process begins and ends from Admin.
  • The system has a question database (QDB).
  • All the applications fully support the Greek language or the language that is desired by the body.
  • The system architecture is the following:


Admin specifications

  • Admin is an online application. It is the basic application of the certification system.
  • It is hosted on a server with such characteristics so that it has an uptime of 100%. The server's connection speed with the internet is at least 10 Mbps.
  • All the security requirements of a Data Center as met, such as backup procedures, encryption, user access management etc.

  • Through Base the person in charge or the examiner of the examination center downloads the examination topics. The examination topics are a set of information such as examinee information, examination modules, minimum success grade, available time and other information required in order to carry out the examination.
  • During the download of the examination topics from the Admin, for each examinee there is a history on possible previous examinations, so that he or she will not be examined on the same question set again.
  • The communication and the transfer of the examination topics between the Base and the Client is achieved with the help of the DCOM technology. All the data to be sent are encrypted using the RC4 algorithm. This way the maximum security is guaranteed for the examination topics.
