Cryptographic Security Analysis of E-voting Systems: Achievements, Misconceptions, and Limitations

Ralf Küsters and Johannes Müller

Rigorous cryptographic security analysis plays an important role in the design of modern e-voting systems by now. There has been huge progress in this field in the last decade or so in terms of formalizing security requirements and formally analyzing e-voting systems. This paper summarizes some of the achievements and lessons learned, which, among others, challenge common believes about the role of and the relationships between central security requirements.
