Online Franchise Capturing Using IPv6 through Automated Teller Machines
ProposedVote Capturing Model
Phases in the Proposed System
Remedies to Failures
Automated Teller Machine is currently operating in the private network of the
financial intuitions for instant cash withdrawal. These systems have been given
the secure way of authentication by providing a Personal Identification Number
As all these transactions are now occurring in a private network, it is possible to
state it as the one of the most secure transactions that could happen through the
The idea is to capture all the voting transactions through ATM terminals, reducing
the load at the bank servers and routing overhead for NFS by exploiting the use of
Gujarat e-voting system:
The main advantages rests in the fact of non-traceability of the votes and voters
authenticity well established and minimized cost to conduct an election.
The main drawback that this system encounters is the non-availability of personal
computers/laptop by any individual necessitates the set up of an e-pooling booth
which might not reduce the cost of conducting an election in big deal.
Also the assumption of existence of internet connection by any individual in the
home draws the crowd towards the e-voting booth.
Exploiting the lack of cryptography.
Casting multiple votes, accessing administrator and poll worker functionality.
Tampering with the system configuration and tampering with ballot definitions.
Impersonating legitimate voting terminals, tampering with election results.
Linking voters with their votes and attacking the start of an election.
Accessing Poll Administrator Functionalities.

Digital Certificates are mutually exchanged. Provided with Secret Code and
asked to enter Voter Identification Number.
Initial Handshake and Session Validation – First Phase of Voting Transaction

Complete Authentication and Confidentiality ensured with achieving Non-
Traceability of the vote cast. Ballot Definition Tampering Impossible.
One Time Set-Up, thus minimizing cost to the Government.
Instant availability of results and biometric authentication is achieved.
Multiple Vote Cast becomes impossible with possibility of Reverse Secret Code.
Reduced Number of Transactions.

in RESTful Web Services.

This model proposed helps in achieving the authenticity, non- traceability of
vote cast and security with confidentiality also being enforced. Security models
such as the voter-verified audit trail allowed for voting systems that produce a
paper trail that can be seen and verified by a voter could be a future work.
In such a system, the correctness burden on the voting terminal’s code is
significantly less as voters can see and verify a physical object that describes
their vote and are allowed to vote in terminal only after their identity is proved.
