The voting software POLYAS CORE 2.5.0 meets the requirements of the international Protection Profile according to Common Criteria and is a central element of the certification by the BSI (German Federal Office for Information Security). The Protection Profile for secure online voting products is based on the electoral principles anchored in German Basic Law (universal, secret, free, equal, direct).
Compliance with the electoral principles in the POLYAS CORE 3.0 voting system is ensured by cryptographic and mathematical methods. For example, voting secrecy is preserved by asymmetric encryption processes. Once the vote has been cast, the voter can no longer be identified.
Voting with POLYAS is therefore secure, whether an election is conducted with the POLYAS CORE 2.5.0 or the POLYAS CORE 3.0.
