Educational Programme: Applied Mathematics and Information Science (Bachelor)

Against the backdrop of ongoing digitalization, the use case of electronic voting has naturally arisen. This has been attempted since 2000. Blockchain technology has the potential to bring trust and built-in auditing tools to such systems, and considerable research has been carried out, analyzing the suitability of blockchain for solving the problem of polling and implementing an algorithm for conducting votes. In order to solve this task, blockchain technologies are most effectively used with the use of a ring signature algorithm, which ensures the transfer of closed (secret) data without loss of reliability and with respect for the privacy of group members. To create the system, the Exonum open-source framework was chosen and the Rust programming language was used.
