LONDON - Monday, October 17th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Smartmatic is officially presenting this week the first secure online voting solution where the voter's identity is verified with a selfie.
The greatest challenge for online voting has always been to make sure that whoever is voting is really the person that is eligible to vote, and also to guarantee that every person can vote only once. This has been finally solved by providing a secure digital identity to voters where their facial image is taken as part of the registration process and then checked with a selfie prior to casting their vote online.
The presentation will take place during the E-VOTE-ID 2016 conference in Bregenz, Austria, on October 18-21. This event, gathers election experts from around the world, to share research, experience and best practice in the realm of electronic voting and identity management.
“We are proud to be presenting this ‘class-leading’ solution that seamlessly integrates online authentication and voting, thereby empowering election authorities to successfully address the challenges of remote voting and voter eligibility assurance. With our solution, you can vote online securely with a selfie,” said Antonio Mugica, Smartmatic’s CEO.
Smartmatic’s online voting system, TIVI, leverages facial biometrics to allow voters to authenticate themselves using their smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. Integrating biometric authentication with online voting eliminates the risk of voter impersonation and guarantees that only eligible voters have access to the system and can successfully cast their vote.
TIVI is the only online voting solution in the world that allows universal digital verifiability to prove the integrity of the vote, from the point of casting up to the counting central facility. Utilising advanced cryptographic techniques and a Blockchain based ballot box, it guarantees voter privacy, vote security and vote integrity.
