Abstract: In a cloud based online voting system, the life cycle starts with voter registration, authentication, voting and counting. The election process is a secret process as whole democratic administration is centralised on voting. Authentication, confidentiality, integrity, scalability, speeds and accuracy these are few important criteria to be satisfied by an online voting system. Authentication can be considered as the most critical issue among all the above. So the voters should be kept at the highest priority to make the voting process fair and effective. Through some of the literatures that deal with the issue of authentication mechanisms, the proposed method conceals the original biometric template such that it is impossible to recover the biometric template even when the stored data in the system is open to an attacker. We assess the system with relativity matrix between security requirements, issues, techniques and mechanisms.

Keywords: authentication; cloud security; fuzzy commitment; online voting system.
