Security requirements for non-political Internet voting


This paper describes the development of security requirements for nonpolitical Internet voting. The practical background is our experience with the Internet voting within the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI - Informatics Society) 2004 and 2005. The theoretical background is the international state-of-the-art of requirements about electronic voting, especially in Europe and in the US. A focus of this paper is on the user community driven standardization of security requirements by means of a Protection Profile of the international Common Criteria standard. An extended version of this article (20 pages) is published as technical report by the University in Koblenz (see reference list).
