This paper discusses the specific security requirements of Internet-based learning (eLearning). Two concrete solutions for improving the degree of securityachievable are shown. First, a framework for secure testing is introduced. This framework prevents manipulation from the side of the students during learning thus allowing a reliable control of learning success. Second, solution presented deals with the problem of con.dentialityand protection of copyright. By establishing a lifelong control of the copyright owner over his documents it prevents illegitimate access and redistribution.
