In this paper, we explore the security related procedures that are required for the successful development and deployment of electronic voting in legally-binding government elections. Initiating our research on the theoretical basis, which justifies the necessity for security in deploying electronic elections, we further explore the question of who and what(More)
This paper proposes the use of Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) methods and analysis tools to address the issues arising in the implementation of electronic voting. We consider the electoral process as one which has to be re-designed in order to effectively accommodate e-Voting technology. We identify the key areas of e-Voting where the use of BPR can(More)
In this paper we suggest a generic re-engineering methodology for the organized redesign of the electoral process to an e-electoral process. Based on the hypothesis that the electoral process has been through a “silent” re-engineering phase, we present the process re-engineering concepts which can be used to depict the redesign of the electoral process to(More)
