In this paper the authors present a proposal for a large-scale lecture authentication algorithm for an electronic attendance system. The utilization rate for existing electronic attendance systems is low. Because it couldn't solve the problems that occur by special conditions of university such as vicarious attendance, bottlenecking during attendance check-in, and attendees departure at intermission. The most important things are not the authentication problems or errors on the technical issues. Instead, issues are related to attempts to check attendance simultaneously by a number of students, failure to prevent vicarious attendance, and the uncertainties of students remaining in the classroom following check-in.
