Vol. 17  No. 1  pp. 60-66


E-learning is the answer to the new challenges of online education, involving the interaction between teachers or trainers and learners. An e-learning platform is a web-based software application, depending on the utilized technology and Internet environment. Due to the close connection between e-learning platforms and the web, platforms are threatened and vulnerable to various cyber-attacks. As a measure to block unauthorized access to e-learning systems, choosing a strong password is a first protective obstacle. The paper is focused on security issues in e-learning platforms and proposes an algorithm that generates strong passwords to secure personal data, while offering the possibility to check the strength of the generated password.
