Barcelona – October 18, 2016 – Scytl, the worldwide leader in election modernization and online voting technology shares key security and verifiability best practices from governments, political parties and private associations implementations across the globe for end-to-end security and individual and universal verifiability with online voting experts and academics at E-Vote-Id, the international conference for online voting.
As election organizations realize the benefits of leveraging online voting for providing efficiencies and accessibility, the uptake in online voting across the globe continues. And so does the need to address end-to-end security and full verifiability. The integrity, security and verifiability of the election process are Scytl´s highest priorities and fully address these challenges. Scytl´s advances in the field of applied cryptography, verifiability and security protocols, together with the best practices obtained from successfully implementing +100 online voting projects in both the public and the private sectors in more than 20 countries and makes Scytl Online Voting the most advanced online voting solution available today.
During the E-Vote-Id conference, Scytl security experts will present during the PhD Colloquium Secret suffrage in remote electronic voting systems by Adrià Rodríguez-Pérez, Long-term privacy in e-voting by Núria Costa and Jordi Puiggalí Scytl CSO and SVP Research & Security to demonstrate Scytl´s Online voting end-to-end security and individual and universal verifiability. Key elements from Scytl´s global implementation to be shown during the E-Vote-Id conference include:
- Security: Guaranteed election data integrity, vote secrecy and voter privacy by using end-to-end encryption and digital signatures, complete verifiability of the election, including election eligibility and vote correctness verification processes.
- Transparency: Ensures the highest levels of transparency in election processes providing voters, observers and public auditors with verifiable proofs of the election process, ensuring that the voting and counting processes represent voters´ intentions and process integrity. Opening source code to public auditability: Scytl was the first OLV solution to open its complete source code to the public for a binding national election (Norway 2011).
- Provability: Security of the online voting solution can be cryptographically proven by external experts via our publically available mathematical proofs (i.e.: individual verification, privacy processes, etc.), immutable logs and private block chains.
- Accessibility: Providing accessibility and usability to persons with disabilities and remote voters, not only from the voting process perspective, but also from the verification point of view: Scytl OLV solution has provided the highest percentage of online voters that verified their votes (70%).
