In this paper, we analyse information leakage in Ryan's Prêtà Voter with Paillier encryption scheme (PAV-Paillier). Our analysis shows that although PAV-Paillier seems to achieve a high level of voter privacy at first glance, it might still leak voter's choice information in some circumstances. Some threats are trivial and have appeared in the literature,(More)
This paper describes the design of a supervised verifiable voting protocol suitable for use for elections in the state of Victoria, Australia. We provide a brief overview of the style and nature of the elections held in Victoria and associated challenges. Our protocol, based on Prêt à Voter, presents a new ballot overprinting front-end design, which assists(More)
Proposals for a secure voting technology can involve new mechanisms or procedures designed to provide greater ballot secrecy or verifiability. These mechanisms may be justified on the technical level, but researchers and voting officials must also consider how voters will understand these technical details, and how understanding may affect interaction with(More)
The selection and popularization of early-maturing cotton is paramount in resolving the conflict between occupying farmlands utilizing grain and cotton while optimizing agricultural structure. Node of first fruiting branch (NFFB) and its height (HNFFB) can be used as the important indicators to measure cotton earliness. In this study, Baimian2, an(More)
A number of end-to-end verifiable voting schemes have been introduced recently. These schemes aim to allow voters to verify that their votes have contributed in the way they intended to the tally and in addition allow anyone to verify that the tally has been generated correctly. These goals must be achieved while maintaining voter privacy and providing(More)
—This paper discusses the findings of a series of four focus group sessions carried out on a variant of the original Prêtà Voter prototype implementation [2]. The aim of these sessions was to investigate users' ability to use the system, to discover any inadequacies of the system, and to gauge the participants' understanding of its security mechanisms. The(More)
Making use of the markers linked closely to QTL for early-maturing traits for MAS (Marker-assisted selection) is an effective method for the simultaneous improvement of early maturity and other properties in cotton. In this study, two F2 populations and their F2:3 families were generated from the two upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) crosses, Baimian2 ×(More)
