CBSE-Paper-Leak

This time Microsoft and CBSE (Central Board Of Secondary Education) have a new plan to prevent board exam paper leaks. The board had received considerable criticism due to the paper leak of CBSE's 10th and 12th during this year. This time CBSE has already arranged to prevent such incidents. Due to the paper leak of CBSE, students and their parents were faced with great difficulty across the country. Around 20,299 CBSE school are registered across the country. The CBSE has teamed up with Microsoft Company to create an encrypted solution. The CBSE will now prepare a digital question paper for board exams, the Microsoft will be responsible for the security of the contents leaking. Microsoft will provide security for 3 months. Mr Anil Bhansali, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Microsoft India ( Research and Development ), and managing director of Cloud and Enterprise told – “We have developed for CBSE an innovative solution which makes question papers leak-proof until 30 minutes prior to the start of the examinations”.


Mr Bhansali added If the question paper leaks in some way, then it can not be downloaded until 30 minutes before the start of the examination. Our system can easily find out where the question paper is leaked. Because water marking will be done separately for every exam center. At present, this system is being run like a pilot program.Under this pilot program for 487 exam center exam papers of the 10th standard has been prepared.

This solution has been developed using Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 365. The whole system follows two-factor-authentication, using this mechanism exam controller can get detail where the papers have been opened. Beside it, the OTP (one time password) and bio-metric security also set to make it leak-proof. It depends on the exam superintendent that which type authentication mode he opt for.

The administrator of CBSE will send one drive cloud link through email to the exam centre. The one drive is the cloud storage service provided by Microsoft. There will be a question paper in this email. After going through the authentication process it can be downloaded. It is said by Microsoft official that the same process can be implemented for other boards.

It's a bit annoying to the JIO users. The company says that WhatsApp will not be available initially for everyone. It will be rolled out batchwise. In the beginning, certain numbers of the user will be able to take advantage of WhatsApp. The worst thing for YouTube users is that you cannot save the videos offline and they will not get a watch it later option.

In the beginning, the company had said that social media apps will be preloaded on the new phone of JIO. But now JIO official website says that only certain apps will be preloaded rest of the have to downloaded/install separately from JIOStore. Following apps come preloaded on JioPhone2:
