1 Verifiable Classroom Voting Feng Hao School of Computing Science Newcastle University Learning and Teaching Seminar (13 Nov, 2012)

2 Background UTLSEC innovation project (Jun-Aug, 2012) – Aim: verifiable classroom voting based on using smart phones as voting clients – By comparison, TurningPoint classroom voting system is not verifiable. – TurningPoint also relies on using proprietary hardware for voting clients and server

3 Overview of our system Publicly verifiable without having to trust admin/teacher Students use their own devices to vote Voting can happen at anywhere as long as Internet is available Web server Voting clients (iPhones, Android phones etc) Internet

4 Demo Three ways to vote – Android phone/tablet: search for “Newcastle University eVoting”in Google play and install the app – iPhone/iPad: search for “Newcastle University eVoting” in the app store and install the app – All other smart phones, laptops, Visit To participate in voting, try – Session ID: 48 – Passcode: 1234

5 Verifiable classroom voting We believe it is the first such in the world – State-of-the-art verifiable e-voting technologies all require trustworthy authorities to do the tallying – Unrealistic to find such authorities in classroom voting The core technology underneath our solution – Self-enforcing e-voting (Hao, Kreeger, 2010) – Goes beyond the current state-of-the-art – Ground-breaking nature recognized by the recent award of 2012 ERC Starting Grant (1.5m euros)

6 Acknowledgements Hard work by two students over summer Mr Carlton Shepherd – Currently a CS Stage 3 student – Developed the Android app Dr Dylan Clarke – Currently an RA – Developed the iPhone app and web server
