Because cloud computing provides a computing power, a development environment, and storage spaces as much as user to want, the range of its use is increasingly expanded, and also service of cloud computing for mobile devices is increased. The existing education environment is being changed for smart learning environment using smart equipment and cloud computing. All information of users using cloud computing is stored in the cloud server. Thus, as users’ anxiety to use it is weighted, one of the most important things to consider is the security issues in cloud computing environments. Cloud computing requires authentication scheme to provide high quality security in order to securely keep date in the server. This study aims to propose secure authentication scheme of the smart learning system in the cloud computing environment. In this way, the authentication scheme allows user securely to have access to the smart learning system in the cloud environment.
