Secure E-Voting

Secure E-Voting

The Cryptography Group at Royal Holloway is interested in the study and design of secure e-voting systems.

As the primary example of a multi-party protocol, secure e-voting poses a very wide variety of challenges, from the numerous design and security requirements it needs to satisfy to its real-world implementation. These challenges, coupled with the ambition of being impactful in the context of digital democracy, makes this an extremely exciting space to work in.

Our contributions to the area include the development of cryptographically-enabled voter authentication, the study of the relation between e-voting schemes and e-auctions, and the formal analysis of the notion of vote privacy, also known as ballot secrecy, in its varying strengths.
