Mobile Voting -- Still Too Risky?

Sven Heiberg and Kristjan Krips and Jan Willemson

Abstract: This paper studies the challenges of creating a mobile device based voting client. We discuss the issues related to standalone and mobile browser based voting applications. In both cases we discuss the problems of vote privacy, integrity and voting channel availability. We conclude that neither of the options can currently achieve the level of security PC-based voting clients can provide, with the attack surface being larger in the case of mobile browser based voting application.
