E-Voting Group

The design of secure protocols for electronic voting is widely considered as one of the most challenging problems in applied cryptography. To achieve an adequate security level in such protocols for protecting both, the privacy and integrity of the vote, a profound and comprehensive expertise in advanced cryptography is an important prerequisite for the group's accomplishments. Currently, the group is involved in several interdisciplinary projects, in which various cryptographic voting protocols are developed, implemented, and tested. Our experience in privacy-protection technologies allows us also to tackle related problems such as e-ticketing and road pricing.

We have strong links the e-voting researches in Switzerland as well as abroad. We also cooperate with the Federal Chancellery of Switzerland which supervises the Swiss e-Voting pilots of several cantons.

The group maintains also a separate web site e-voting.bfh.ch.
