Many higher education institutions offer educational courses online on ELearning basis with web 2.0 applications to support and conduct their coursework. One of the novel tools used in such learning platforms is video conferencing. Little has been done so far to ensure the security and integrity of information transmitted over video conferencing platforms in ELearning. Since this style of education so heavily relies on the web, threats uncommon to other forms of learning are encountered. Security measures implemented for online applications have not been very successful in securing such systems due to their unique nature. This research sought to develop a security framework for use in securing video conferencing systems as used in synchronous ELearning in institutions of higher learning. The paper looks at the current security measures in use, their shortfalls and proposes a framework of implementing video conferencing security.
