The United Kingdom (UK) government has repeatedly expressed a desire to employ a Remote Electronic Voting (REV) system in a general election after 2006. Most existing REV schemes employ some form of cryptography, either to secure transmission of votes, or to model some desirable feature of public elections. This paper outlines the limitations of employing(More)
Remote electronic voting is currently being piloted in the UK as a means of increasing the convenience of casting a ballot, which it is hoped will be reflected in an increased participation in elections. Most proposed electronic voting schemes envisage the use of cryptography in order to model the features of democratic elections, which, informally, include(More)
This paper addresses support for energy efficient single-hop communications in Environmental Monitoring Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). The main contributions are twofold firstly; the identification of scenarios where single hop communication, between multiple sensors and a base station is both feasible and offers benefits with respect to power(More)
This paper describes an exploratory study of a prototype implementation of a pollsterless remote voting scheme, mCESG. The aim of the study was to investigate voter attitudes towards the system in general, with particular interest in the pollsterless vote verifiability provided. Although the focus of the study was one particular prototype system, the(More)
The advances made in technology have unchained the user from the desktop into interactions where access is anywhere, anytime. In addition, the introduction of ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) will see further changes in how we interact with technology and also socially. Ubicomp evokes a near future in which humans will be surrounded by “always-on,”(More)
Over the past several years, the UK government has piloted several new voting technologies during local authority elections. The mCESG pollsterless Remote Electronic Voting (REV) system, which was designed with the UK electoral context in mind, is described in detail by Storer and Duncan (2004). Here, we describe two variations to the mCESG scheme which (a)(More)
