Remote Voting Endorsed With Identity Confirmation
Authentication is an important factor in any type of communication. Considering the voting process, both for the
voting system authenticating the human as a legitimate voter without sacrificing secret balloting, and for the voter
authenticating the vote recorder authentication plays a vital role. Remote voting provides a way to vote remotely but the
authentication is tedious in both the ways. Human factors are vital part of the authentication process. In particular, the
system for authenticating the vote recorder must be designed in a way that ensures the human cannot be easily tricked into
trusting an illicit recorder and so that the voter has confidence in the integrity of the voting process. In this paper, some of
the issues associated with Internet-based remote voting are discussed and a method to provide both authentication and secret
balloting system is proposed using visual cryptography.
