Civitas: A Secure Remote Voting System

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,
