Civitas: A Secure Remote Voting System

pdf-format:
Document 1.pdf (309 KB)


Abstract

Civitas is the first implementation of a coercion-resistant, universally verifiable, remote voting scheme. This paper describes the design of Civitas, details the cryptographic protocols used in its construction, and illustrates how language-enforced information-flow security policies yield assurance in the implementation. The performance of Civitas scales well in the number of voters and offers reasonable tradeoffs between time, cost, and security. These results suggest that secure electronic voting is achievable. The name of this system as presented at Dagstuhl was CIVS. In August 2007, the name was changed to Civitas. For more information, see the Civitas website at http://www.cs.cornell.edu/projects/civitas.
