Splitting voting vote

During electronic and online voting operations, vote and voter information are immediately split and saved in two separate areas. Any logical, physical or temporal correlation is permanently lost upon confirmation of voting in the digital ballot box. In fact, ELIGO digitally reproduces the act of inserting a paper ballot inside a ballot box making any correlation between the vote cast and the voter unreconstructible, with the advantage that ballots cannot be marked in any way by the voter, effectively eliminating void ballots. This process ensures the same characteristics of paper voting with the benefits of digital.

Encryption at every level

Cryptography, a technique that is applied to communications and data to maintain their secrecy and integrity, is a key piece of cybersecurity. All communication to the system is via https cryptographic protocol and 256-bit encryption. At the infrastructure level, ELIGO is protected by dual state-of-the-art logical and physical firewalls. For the database, on the other hand, Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) and optionally a dual-key encryption service on the digital urn is implemented. This ensures the unalterability of the votes cast before the start of polling operations. In addition, the ELIGO system undergoes periodic Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing by qualified market players.

Security and control

Every activity on the system is properly tracked with special log tables, which can be provided to the customer as an additional assurance. In addition, thanks to a special monitoring interface, the proper progress of election activities can be checked in real time. A copy of the software source code can be requested for possible verification and forensic dump techniques. The source code of the system and the proper functioning of ELIGO are continuously audited by third-party entities. Finally, ELIGO ballots are digitally signed and contain time stamp evidence to ensure the genuineness of election results.
