A Case Study in System-Based Analysis: The ThreeBallot Voting System and Prêt à Voter

Lookup NU author(s): Thomas Tjostheim, Thea Peacock, Professor Peter Ryan



Threat analysis of voting systems is an increasing field of interest. While it is important to verify the system itself, it has been found that certain vulnerabilities only become apparent when taking a “system-based” view, i.e. considering interactions between the various components of a scheme. In this paper we apply a model for system-based analysis [22] to carry out a systematic threat analysis of the ThreeBallot voting system [18] and Prêt à Voter [8].
