AbstractWiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a point-to-multipoint wireless network based on IEEE 802.16 standard. The WiMAX signal is broadcasted from a base station to the wide-geographically spread receivers. WiMAX enabled mobile devices become very popular due to the fact the network connections can be easily maintained on move. Regarding the network security, WiMAX provides strong user authentication, access control, data privacy and data integrity using sophisticated encryption technology. WiMAX technology is the only solution for isolated locations where e-learning distributed platforms need to be used. This paper focuses on security issues for e-learning solutions, especially when WiMAX technology is used.
