|Title: ||Civitas: Implementation of a Threshold Cryptosystem|
|Authors: ||Davis, Adam M.|
Clarkson, Michael R.
|Keywords: ||electronic voting|
|Issue Date: ||22-Dec-2008|
|Abstract: ||This paper describes the implementation of a threshold cryptosystem for Civitas, a secure electronic voting system. The cryptosystem improves the availability of Civitas by enabling tabulation to complete despite the failure of some agents. The implementation includes a sophisticated distributed key generation protocol, which was designed by Gennaro, Jarecki,
Krawczyk, and Rabin. The cryptosystem is implemented in Jif, a security-typed language.|
