The research project "INVOLVE - INternet VOting UsabLe and VErifiable" has started.

The research project "INVOLVE - INternet VOting UsabLe and VErifiable" has started. The goal of INVOLVE is to investigate and optimize the usability of verification mechanisms in Internet voting systems.

An important goal in designing secure Internet voting systems is preventing vote manipulations either by a malicious voting device or a malicious voting system component. For preventing such manipulations, the academic community introduced the concept of end-to-end verifiability. End-to-end verifiability offers mechanisms for the voter to verify whether a vote was cast-as-intended, recorded-as-cast and tallied-as-recorded. The usability of such mechanisms, however, is crucial in ensuring that the voters actually perform the verification procedures required of them correctly.

The project runs for two years and is funded by a scholarship of the Horst Görtz Foundation. SECUSO member Karola Marky has started her work on INVOLVE in the framework of her scholarship since the project kick-off on july 1st 2017. CYSEC is the project partner of INVOLVE.
