Abstract

E-voting is not the same as e-democracy it is however a tool with the potential to help distribute rights in the voting process. The process may well prove to be a new ‘killer application’ for the Internet and a suitable authentication tool for voting security. A previous model outlined by the authors based on the use of voting smart cards and the Internet is expanded detailing concerns at the operational level and providing alternative solutions for security and the rigors required for voting scrutiny.
