Description : verifiable voting system
Belenios aims at providing an easy to use voting system, guaranteeing
state-of-the-art security, namely vote privacy and verifiability. It
can be used in many types of elections, ranging from scientific
councils to sport associations.
It consists of a command-line tool and a web server. Both use the
same backend and can be used to organize elections and perform
Security properties of the system are:
* Vote privacy: No one can learn the vote of a voter. Vote privacy
relies on the encryption of the votes.
* End-to-end verifiablity: Every voter can check that her vote has
been counted and only eligible voters may vote. End-to-end
verifiablity relies on the fact that the ballot box is public
(voters can check that their ballots have been received) and on
the fact that the tally is publicly verifiable (anyone can recount
the votes). Moreover, ballots are signed by the voter credential
(only eligible voters are able to vote).
This package will be maintained inside the Debian OCaml team. To avoid
interaction with the next OCaml transition (esp. the Eliom stack),
only the command-line tool will be packaged until that transition.
