Abstract This master s thesis describes the process of creating a prototype of a Report and Exam Submission System, where students can submit documents to teachers in a secure manner. Students use digital signatures to sign report- and exam documents. The system allows multiple signatures, many students can sign the same document. The document can be encrypted if the content should be kept confidential. Teachers and external examiners can view documents and manage access the documents. They can also decrypt the documents if they have been encrypted. The security aspects of such a system, like digital signatures, encryption and decryption were examined and are explained in the thesis. When creating a prototype the following software engineering parts are essential: analysis, design, implementation and testing. The analysis was done by identifying the requirements and then writing the use cases. The design part consists of describing the system architecture and designing the database. The prototype was thereafter implemented by using the analysis and the design descriptions.
