Welcome to the Trustworthy Voting Systems Project
What is the Trustworthy Voting Systems Project
Governments all over the world are investing in electronic voting, but experiences in the USA and in the UK have shown that there are immense obstacles to be overcome before we can have secure and usable systems. The Trustworthy Voting Systems project aims to develop and implement robust voter-verifiable electronic voting systems that are usable in real large-scale elections.
The project is EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) funded and is a collaboration between the University of Surrey and the University of Birmingham. We also have collaborations with the SeRTVS project at the University of Luxembourg. As part of the implementation we are closely collaborating with Douglas Wikström, from the School of Computer Science and Communication of the Royal Institute of Technology, who is the main author of Verificatum. Verificatum is an open source project that aims to implement a complete, practical, fast, and provably secure mix-net and will form the cornerstone of our implementation.
