This project was designed to present a prototype of facial authentication system that allows for the recognition of students who are using an online platform to take final evaluations in our Distance Learning Program, with the purpose of detecting fraud and identity theft. It uses the OpenFace algorithm based on neural networks, taking input from two-dimensional images of the student from time to time during the participation on the exam. We present a system for face recognition using an image database of faces in classroom setting to demonstrate the improvement using this OpenFace algorithm for the preprocessing approach. The preliminary results indicate a high accuracy in the recognition of students, in terms of brightness, size and quality of the image of the face.
