An Introduction to Electronic Voting Schemes

A. Riera

Abstract. The field of secure voting schemes has recently attracted much attention from researchers. Since many security requirements are involved (and some of them are contradictory) solutions are not obvious. The aim of this paper is to provide an introduction to the state-of-the-art in electronic voting schemes. The cryptographic techniques most commonly used to design secure elections will be presented and discussed.

Key words. Network security, cryptographic protocols, electronic voting schemes.
