Description :

CyberVote, un syst�me de vote en ligne innovant � partir de terminaux internet fixes et mobiles, est un projet de recherche et d�veloppement (RDT) financ� par la Commission Europ�enne, avec un financement compl�mentaire des industriels et organisations participants  au projet. Ce projet fait partie du programme 1999 de Recherche, de D�veloppement technologique & de D�monstration des Technologies de la Soci�t� de l'Information (IST) du cinqui�me programme-cadre (5�me PCRD). Ce projet est rattach� � l'action cl� 1 "Syst�mes et services pour les citoyens".

L'objectif du projet CyberVote est de d�montrer un prototype de vote en ligne hautement s�curis� utilisant des technologies internet fixes et mobiles. Le projet d�finira et impl�mentera un prototype CyberVote encapsulant un protocole de vote innovant reposant sur l'utilisation d'outils de cryptographie avanc�e qui seront d�velopp�s pour assurer l'int�grit�, la confidentialit� et l'authentification des �lecteurs. Le prototype fera l'objet de d�monstrations et d'�valuation dans le cadre de 3 applications pilotes.

Le projet est men� par un consortium pilot� par EADS Matra Syst�mes & Information (FR) et regroupant : British Telecommunications (UK), NOKIA Research Centre (FI), K.U.Leuven Research & Development (BE), Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (NL), Freie Hansestadt Bremen (DE), Mairie d'Issy-les-Moulineaux (FR) et  Kista Stadsdelsn�mnd (SE).

Le projet a officiellement d�marr� le 1 Septembre 2000. Il se terminera le 1 Mars 2003. Le budget global du projet s'�l�ve � � 3 243 629 et repr�sente un effort total de 27,4 homme-ans. Le planning global du projet est pr�sent� ci-dessous.

Plan de travail:

Afin d'atteindre les objectifs du projet, les lots de travaux suivants ont �t� �tablis (en anglais) :

  • WP1 Management: this work package will cover all usual management activities (reporting to the Commission, quality audits, etc.) as well as the setting of appropriate tools for enabling efficient communication between the consortium.
  • WP2 Requirement Analysis: this work package will consist in reviewing current and past electronic democracy projects, analysing the legal issues of using an Internet voting system and analysing user (voters and authorities representatives) requirements. From a technical point view, a review and a selection of candidate authentication and security techniques will be carried out as well as a review of candidate Internet technologies, hardware platforms, mobile phones and Internet terminals. Mock-ups of the CyberVote architecture will be evaluated at this stage in order define the overall system architecture. The end of this work package will mark a major project milestone (MS1), the definition of the overall system architecture.
  • WP3 System Architecture specification and design: this work package will consist in defining the ergonomics plan that will be followed along the project in order to ensure the acceptability of the system by the user and in specifying the voting and communication protocols to be used between the clients (PCs and mobile phones) and the servers (local and global servers). A test plan will be elaborated at this stage to be used in the validation phase. Finally, a trial simulation will be conducted with prototype version 0 in order to get an early feedback from the user and make the necessary changes if needed. The end of this work package will mark another major project milestone (MS2), CyberVote prototype version 0.
  • WP4 Implementation, integration, validation and security: this work package will consist in the implementation of the e-voting protocol, the coding of the software modules (voting protocols, authentication module, servers, clients) that will be run on PC and mobile phone clients, the coding of the local and global servers (vote counting, result compilation, etc.) as well as the integration, validation and security testing of all these components in the overall system. The end of this work package will mark a major project milestone (MS3), the completion of the CyberVote prototype version 1.0.
  • WP5 Trial applications: this work package will consist in the trial applications of CyberVote. Once the scope of these applications is refined, elections will be prepared on the pilot voting sites. CyberVote will be configured in order to conduct the trial applications in real situations. Security attacks will be launched in order to assess the robustness. An evaluation report will conclude this phase. An evaluation will be carried out to conclude this phase, showing the techno-economic and social adequacy of the CyberVote system. The end of this work package will mark a major project milestone (MS4), the demonstrations of the trial applications.
  • WP6 Assessment and evaluation: this work package will consist in assessing the partial and the final results of the project and evaluate if the progress made are in line with the contractual objectives of the project. It will ensure that the contractual objectives of the project will be reached. Appropriate measures will be taken if the reports of this WP shows any discrepancy from the original objectives. The end of this work package will mark the last project milestone (MS5), the final report.
  • WP7 Exploitation and dissemination: this work package will cover all activities needed to disseminate (publications, events organisation, etc.) and exploit the results of the project (exploitation plan, technological implementation plan, etc.).
