    Real-World Electronic Voting: Design, Analysis and Deployment captures all major developments in electronic voting since 2003 in a real-world setting. It covers three broad categories: e-voting protocols, attacks reported on e-voting and new developments on the use of e-voting.

    This book explores recent innovations in both poll-site and remote voting systems and their application throughout the world. The requirements of elections are analysed, the available tools and technologies are described, and a variety of modern systems are presented in detail together with discussions of deployments. This is an invaluable resource for election professionals, researchers and policy makers alike.

     Key Features:

    • Reviews both technical and social aspects of e-voting

    • Covers e-voting protocols, attacks reported on e-voting and new developments on the use of e-voting

    • Designed for government election practitioners and policy makers who want to understand the threats and opportunities in e-voting and assess its suitability for future elections
