End-to-end verifiable voting

This article led me to the homepage for Wombat Voting, which has implemented an end-to-end cryptographically verifiable voting system that will be used in the primary election for one of Israel’s political parties (Meretz). Alon Rosen is the faculty member in charge of the project, and the system is built on top of a mix-net (“Verificatum”) developed by Douglas Wikstrom.

It’s always nice to see cryptographic protocols developed by the research community actually being used in practice.

  1. Thanks for the post, Jon. I would like to point out that I have led this project jointly with Amnon Ta-Shma, Ben Riva and Jonathan Ben-Nun.
