Web-based Electronic Voting and Decision Making
University of Connecticut
March 17, 2006
JEC 3117 - 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Refreshments at 3:30 p.m.
In this talk I will present a prototype system for web-based electronic
voting and decision making procedures. The system employs homomorphic
encryption for vote aggregation and is based on a bulletin board
communication model. In the talk, I will go over the design principles that
were followed in the realization of our system and I will explain its
cryptographic and security properties.
Aggelos Kiayias is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and
Engineering at the University of Connecticut. Aggelos holds a Ph.D. and an
M.A. from the City University of New York, and a B.S. from the Mathematics
Department of the University of Athens. His doctoral study in cryptography
was supported by a Fulbright Fellowship. His research interests include
encryption schemes, digital rights management, privacy primitives, digital
signatures, and electronic voting systems. Aggelos was an invited tutorial
speaker on E-Voting in the 2002 ACM Conference on Computer and
Communications Security. In 2005, he was awarded an NSF CAREER Award for
studying the cryptographic aspects of digital rights management.
