[en] Internet voting; vote manipulation
[en] One of the major problems that prevent the widespread of
Internet voting is the vulnerability of the voter’s computer. A computer
connected to the Internet is exposed to virus, worms, spyware, malware
and other threats that can endanger the election’s integrity. For instance,
it is possible to write a virus that changes the voter’s vote to one predetermined
vote on election’s day. It is possible to write such a virus so that
the voter would not notice anything wrong with the voting application.
This attack is very dangerous because it may pass undetected. To prevent
such attack it is necessary to prevent automatic vote manipulation
at voter’s computer. Here we present CodeVoting, a technique to create
a secure communication channel to a smart card that prevents vote manipulation
by the voter’s PC, while at the same time allows the use of
any cryptographic voting protocol to protect the election’s integrity at
the server side of the voting application.
