Our Story

In 1994, Dr. Andreu Riera published one of the first European PhD theses in the field of secure electronic voting as part of a research group at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) dedicated to designing cryptographic protocols for online voting. Their research gained new significance during the 2000 United States Presidential Election, when several problems during the ballot counting jeopardized trust in the election results.

All of these factors helped spawn Scytl, a company dedicated to providing secure and advanced technology, founded on research and experience, to meet modern day electoral challenges.
