Session Chair: Peter Ryan
Electronic voting aims to achieve the same properties as traditional paper based voting. Even when voters vote from their home, they should be given the same guarantees, without having to trust the election authorities, the voting infrastructure, and/or the Internet network. The two main security goals are vote privacy: no one should know how I voted; and verifiability: a voter should be able to check that the votes have been properly counted. In this talk, we will explore the subtle relationships between these properties and we will see how they can be realized.
