Good health is not made in hospital, argue this statement from the concept of upstream and downstream?
Voter opens a web application and then opens his/her voter application. Network server captures the vote / ballot from the voter through SSL protocol. Network server encrypts this ballot and then transmits this vote / ballot to votes storing server. Votes storing server checks the credentials of the voter for voting rights. Votes storing server decrypts the received cipher texts which is a major flaw in the system. Votes storing server keeps a copy of ballot and information about the voter and sends the encrypted ballot to the votes counting server. Keeping information about a voter in an unencrypted manner is dangerous. The motive of keeping the voters’ information in the votes storing server is only to verify and check whether the voter is voting again or had casted his/her vote. SERVE internet / electronic voting system has a distributed votes counting server and these are named as LEO (Local election Office). The two internet / electronic voting systems are somehow related and different in other ways. In Estonian system voter application generates a vote and random number and encrypts the vote using public key. Voter application signs this encrypted ballot with private key and sends it to the network server. But in SERVE system, voter application casts vote and generates a random number and encrypts the vote with public key of SERVE. Voter application sends the encrypted ballot with all the private data of voter to network server. Every votes counting server generates an internet / electronic voting key pair. One key is Public key and other one is known as Private Key. Public key is used to encrypt ballots. Voter application receives the acknowledgement in both SERVE & Estonian i>GET ANSWER
