  • Abstract

    In electron-voting system, different attacks and threats may be carried out depending on the operational environment in which the system is used. Voting systems can be easily exposed to attack from different serious threats of denial of service and a Man-in the-Middle attack. Cryptographic techniques like fingerprint sensor and digital signature scheme can be used in electronic voting. Combining two techniques like digital signature and blind signature or fingerprint may be the best solution for a secured electronic voting system. The purpose of this paper address the scope of electronic voting system, and examine the main security problems in electronic voting systems, particularly security threats related to electronic voting systems, the criteria of using electronic voting systems, and solutions to security threats.
