Abstract

We analyze several alternatives of blind digital signatures, for an electronic electoral system in a distributed architecture environment, in view of the persistence of blind signature problems in electoral processes. The objective is to recognize and propose an alternative of a blind signature scheme to improve privacy, confidentiality for the voter and in this way reduce any type of vulnerability with respect to the information of the same. The deductive method is used to summarize the information of the scientific articles studied. It results in a blind signature prototype based on algorithms to mitigate the vulnerabilities of voter information. It is concluded that, in order to guarantee privacy and confidentiality, several blind signature schemes must be implemented together to obtain the benefits of each of them, thus reducing the risks to which the voter's information is exposed in this process.
