Automatic Verification of Security Properties in Remote Internet Voting Protocol With Applied Pi Calculus

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Soundness and coercion resistance are the important and intricate security requirements for remote voting protocols. Several formal models of soundness and coercion-resistance have been proposed in the literatures, but these formal models are not supported by automatic tools. Recently Backes et al. propose a new formal automated model of security properties including soundness and coercion-resistance in applied pi calculus. Meng protocol is one of the leading remote internet voting protocols that claims to satisfy formal definitions of key properties, such as soundness, individual verifiability, as well as receipt-freeness and coercion resistance with weak physical constrains.
