A Dependability Analysis of the Chaum Digital Voting Scheme

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Jeremy Bryans, Professor Peter Ryan



We present a discussion of the requirements for a voting system, then a detailed description of the Chaum digital voting scheme with respect to these requirements.This report is intended primarily to provide a detailed and, we hope fairly accessible, description of the technical aspects of digital voting requirements and the Chaum scheme. It does not seek to explore all the possible social, psychological, political or economic aspects of digital voting. This we leave for other reports.
