Abstract: Internet voting is highly regarded for its speed, automatic counting, cost reduction and lower possibility of error. However, in order to replace traditional voting system with internet-voting, i-voting must meet many requirements and overcome some challenges like collusion, uncoercibility, unfairness and in particular voter insecure platforms. In this paper, we propose a very practical and secure internet voting protocol based on FOO with use of Java Card 3 which can help prevent voting fraud and addresses its major challenges. Java Card 3 technology is a new concept which provides the expected client-side security in a much higher level than an ordinary PC, which is highly vulnerable to infection via the network. Since with Java Card 3 technology the card acts as a secure web client (server) can address the voter side insecure platform problem which is one of main reasons for the delay in implementing I-voting in real world.
