Electronic authentication (e-authentication) is a process to provide electronic identity trust to users who register electronically in an information system. Verifying the identity of students and the veracity of their work is very important for academic institutions because only in this way can academic misconduct be reduced and on the other hand ensure the quality of education. In recent years there has been increasing research into technological innovations that combat fraud and copying. Currently, password-based credentials are one of the most widely used authentication mechanisms, despite their weaknesses. Today digitalization is pervasive in all parts of modern society. One of the main ways to keep this process safe is the verification process. This process begins with the evolution of authentication systems ranging from One Factor Authentication (SFA), and Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) to Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). All these systems have their advantages and disadvantages which negate the lawful use of the user. It can often happen that passwords are forgotten, the wrong placement of the code on the smart cards can be done or biometrics can become temporarily unavailable, such as loss of fingerprint quality. Moreover, biometrics is not safe if used as a single authentication factor as it can be copied (an attacker can take a copy of a fingerprint and build a copy). The purpose of the document is to analyze the level of electronic identity security and electronic identity verification for users who wish to have certain resources using many authentication factors as well as the credentials given to users after successful verification of their identity by a party providing the credentials service.
