AbstractThe trend of rapid development of mobile technologies has highlighted new challenges and threats regarding the information security by the using cookies in mobile learning (m-learning) systems. In order to overcome these challenges and threats, this paper has identified two main objectives. First, to give a review of most common types to cookies and second, to consider the challenges and threats regarding cookies with aspects that are directly related to issues of security and privacy. With these objectives is possible to bridge security gaps in m-learning systems. Moreover, the identified potential challenges and threats are discussed with the given proposals of pragmatic solutions for their mitigating or reducing. The findings of this research may help students to rise security awareness and security behavior in m-learning systems, and to better understand on-going security challenges and threats in m-learning systems.
