Desenvolupament d'un servei de votació segura a entorns Intranet/Internet sobre una infrastructura de certificats

    Project Details

    Description

    The aim of this project is to develop a secure voting service, usable both in Intranet corporative networks and in the Internet. The first case assumes a restricted environment with a small number of voters and only one security policy. The voting service will be available from any standard WWW navigator supporting JAVA. Its goal is to facilitate decision making in enterpriser.
    The second case allows full operability over wide area environments, ideally the whole Internet. A large number of voters can be managed through the simultaneous operation of a set electronic electoral colleges. The design of accurate cryptographic protocols will allow the secure coordination of the electoral colleges.
    The project will also develop a basic security infrastructure based on a hierarchy of certification authorities. Such infrastructure will serve as a platform to support the voting service as well as any other security service required in the future.
