Multiparty Ballot Counting in an Internet Voting Scheme
The authors present a voting scheme in which shares of the ballots are sent to multiple talliers. The talliers operate in parallel and cooperate together to count the ballots by using the technique of the Secure Multi-Party Computations (SMPC) in the Virtual Ideal Functionality Framework (VIFF). The counting process is fair since no single tallier can gain knowledge about the ballots or can count the ballots without cooperating with other talliers. There are fundamentally different approaches to voting known in literature.
