Title: Civitas: Implementation of a Threshold Cryptosystem
Authors: Davis, Adam M.
Chmelev, Dmitri
Clarkson, Michael R.
Keywords: electronic voting
threshold cryptography
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.
