In the era of technology, the voting machine, which is present today, is highly unsecured. Being in the age of Computers we are compromising the security by opting for Electronic voting machine because in the present electronic voting machine is not intelligent that is it cannot determine the person came for the voting is eligible or not . that mean the whole control is kept in the hand of voting in charge officer. One more risk with the present voting machine is that anybody can increase the vote count, since the count is present in the machine itself.
In proposed machine that is “E-Voting “. In this the machine is made intelligent which can determine the eligibility of the voter by scanning the eye pattern and also the vote count is not kept into the same machine itself instead of it it is store in the remote server by converting it into radio waves. Here there is no chance of increasing the vote count of machine. Even in case of damage to voting machine there will not be harm to continuity of the election process. The overall concept of “E-Voting “ is explained.
In India election has supreme weight- age . So to make it secured and efficient in the vision of modern technology we are “E-Voting”. This contribution tries to look into e-Voting from a different angle on the necessary citizen authorization from a different angle. Instead of concepts such as one-time passwords or smart cards, we try to look into the pros and cons of a biometric approach. Biometrics is the science that tries to fetch human biological features with an automated machine either to authentication or identification. Biometric products should remove the necessity of password or PINs. Typical two-factor authorizations use possession, e.g. smart card, and knowledge, e.g. PIN. Biometric systems try to exchange knowledge with an individual feature, e.g. finger print. Recording of the feature should be comfortable and fast. The most commonly use biometric feature is the finger print. It is well known and in wide spread use in daily police work. In contrast to passwords or pin codes, biometric features are dynamic, i.e. they change over time. This is probably the most challenging property of the biometric system. One has to find a balance between a check which is too strict and generates too many rejections, and a check which is too loose and generates too many false accepts. This paper gives an overview of biometric approaches to e-Voting. The first section gives an introduction into e-Voting. The second section elaborates on security issues specific to e-Voting systems. Finally, it focuses on security in e-Voting systems with biometric systems. E-Voting
Many countries have started research projects or even pilots for e-Voting .There are two main motivations to introduce e-Voting: cost savings and increased voter participation and interest. Providing information and increasing the convenience for the citizens goes hand in hand, and it also offers disabled people the possibility to use e-Voting systems. Some approaches of putting e-Voting into practise are quite innovative, such as voting using SMS but still they have to cope with a lot of unsolved technical problems and therefore, it is doubtful if they will be implemented. The most sensitive aspects within eVoting are fraught with secrecy and access issues. Present system:
Electronic Voting Machines ("EVM") are being used in Indian General and State Elections to...
