The Risk of e‑Voting pp169-178
World wide, there are various proposals for automating manual voting processes. This paper considers two different e‑voting schemes, Internet voting and direct recording electronic (DRE) voting systems, explicitly focusing on risk to the integrity of the voting process. Fair elections must assure voter authentication, vote confidentiality and integrity, and the ability to audit the election. E‑voting poses special challenges. The paper analyzes security risks that may threaten e‑voting schemes and makes recommendations.
