Surveying definitions of election verifiability

Ben Smyth & Michael R. Clarkson (2022) Surveying definitions of election verifiability. Information Processing Letters, vol. 177.



We explore definitions of verifiability by Juels et al. (2010), Cortier et al. (2014), and Kiayias et al. (2015). We discover that voting systems vulnerable to attacks can be proven to satisfy each of those definitions and conclude they are unsuitable for the analysis of voting systems. Our results will fuel the exploration for a new definition.
