Current developments in the context of online elections
According to the Bitkom survey for Germany, two thirds of their participants are in favour of online voting in German federal elections. In a recently published paper, the research group SECUSO, the KIT institutes KASTEL and ITAS, together with other researchers, explain why it is much more difficult to secure an online election than, for example, digital shopping. In addition, the paper offers a discussion of some online elections that have been carried out in Germany as well as some explanations of existing requirements catalogues.
