Democratic – respect the rules and spirit
Universality: All citizens also have access to the vote: expatriates, infirm, travelers, elderly, sick
Uniqueness: Each voter has one and only one voice!
Temporality: Ballots cannot be cast before the closing.
Generality : Electronic voting encourages participation, in particular, it avoids the abstention of young people.
Exact – every vote is counted
Authenticity: A vote (its ballot) is valid only if it comes from a legitimate citizen
Integrity : A vote (its ballot) is valid only if it contains the original motivation of the citizen,
Precision : A valid vote can not be deleted.
Completeness : A false vote can not be added.
Private – unconditional anonymity and secrecy
Secret : It is not possible to know the contents of a vote
Anonymity : It is not possible to link a ballot with a voter
Not transferable : No vote by proxy or vote-selling -the vote is strictly personal and a voter can not prove what he has voted.
Auditable – controlled at all times and by all
Earlier audit : The whole system is statically auditable beforehand (publied sources).
Dynamic audit : The electoral commission -fully independent- monitors all operations through a computerized separate unit (cluster of servers), and can ensure that the process is fair.
Internal audit : The whole processes can be analyzed by the local networks (white box)
Personal audit: the voter owns the software on his station (which is the system's keystone) and he receive a signed receipt of his (crypted) ballot
Post Audit : Each elementary operation is provable (statically later).
