Abstract
Internet voting protocol is the base of the Internet voting systems. Firstly, an improved proof protocol
that two ciphertexts are encryption of the same plaintext is introduced. Secondly, a receipt-free and
coercion-resistant Internet voting protocol based on the non-interactive deniable authentication
protocol and an improved proof protocol that two ciphertexts are encryption of the same plaintext is
developed. Thirdly, we analyze the proposed Internet voting protocol. The proposed Internet voting
protocol has the properties of universal verifiability, receiptfreeness and coercion-resistance. At the
same time the proposed protocol is with the weak physical assumption. Lastly, we compare
security properties of the several typical Internet voting protocols with our present protocol.
