Analysis of an internet voting protocol

Kristian Gjøsteen

Abstract: The Norwegian government is planning trials of internet voting in the 2011 local government elections. We describe and analyse the cryptographic protocol that will be used. In our opinion, the protocol is suitable for trials of internet voting, even though it is not perfect.

This paper is a second1 step in an ongoing evaluation of the cryptographic protocol.
