Secure Blind Signature in Electronic Voting System using Smart Card Technology
Abstract-Voting is regarded as one of the most effective methods for individuals to express their opinions to select their democratic leader in the public elections. As the computing, communicating, and cryptographic techniques progress rapidly, increasing emphasis has been placed on developing electronic voting schemes capable of providing more efficient voting services than conventional paper-based voting methods. It has been widely recognized as a secure electronic voting scheme, which satisfies not only completeness, privacy, unfeasibility, eligibility, fairness, verifiability, and robustness, but also receipt-fairness. A receipt-free e-voting scheme based on the virtual voting booth that can be implemented with a smart card. Receipt-freeness is achieved by distributing the voting procedure between the voter and the smart card. The voter and the smart card jointly contribute randomness for the encryption of the ballot. To provide convenience to voters, sufficient voting facilities are supplied in sufficient public voting booths. Unlike conventional paper-based voting systems the voter can choose any voting booth that is convenient and safe to them in the proposed e-voting scheme. By using smart cards to randomize part of content of the ballot, the voter can not construct a receipt.
