LONDON - Tuesday, September 27th 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Smartmatic announced the launch of TIVI, a secure, verifiable online voting solution for governmental elections.
This next-generation voting solution provides the strongest assurance of election integrity of any online voting solution available today. It 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 to counting. Utilising advanced cryptographic technique, it guarantees voter privacy and vote security.
TIVI has been engineered to meet the needs of Election Management Bodies seeking to enfranchise overseas and ex-pat voters, modernize traditional forms of remote voting and to reduce the challenges typically associated with election participation from remote environments.
TIVI is the result of a strategic partnership between Smartmatic and Cybernetica, the cybersecurity corporation responsible for developing the Estonian Internet voting solution used in eight nationwide elections since 2005.
“We engineered TIVI to mitigate the challenges of remote voting and give election authorities a tool to respond to growing trends such as declining participation and the mobile lifestyles of the electorate. With our technology, and regardless of where voters are, voting remains secret, secure, private and verifiable,” said Antonio Mugica, CEO for Smartmatic.
Commenting on the launching of TIVI, Oliver Väärtnõu, CEO of Cybernetica stated, “By utilising state-of-the-art security mechanisms and advanced cryptography, mixed with years of experience, we have developed a world-class solution which guarantees that votes are cast as intended, stored as cast and counted as cast.”
TIVI offers a consistent voting experience on any Internet enabled device and features accessibility tools to provide independent and private voting to voters with disabilities. It also offers auditability tools which allow deep technical and procedural audits to enhance electoral transparency above and beyond traditional remote voting methods and other online voting solutions.
