Despite the claimed benefits of e-voting initiatives, wider adoption of e-voting mechanisms and implementation processes is slower than expected. Several technical, social, and cultural challenges hinder generability and applicability of e-voting. Amongst them, the evaluation and harmonization of e-voting systems, given different legal and statutor...

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic brought renewed attention to electronic voting—this time as a potential option to contain the spread during elections. One of the long unresolved topics with remote voting is the risk of voter’s coercion due to the uncontrolled environment in which it takes place, indicating the importance of the coercion resis...

The ever-increasing number of smart devices connected to the internet poses an unprecedented security challenge. This article presents the implementation of an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) based on the deployment of different one-class classifiers to prevent attacks over the Internet of Things (IoT) protocol Message Queuing Telemetry Transport...
Chapter
This research paper is focused on security in IoT devices network, by providing a visual tool based on Beta Hebbian Learning (BHL) to easily identify attacks in the network to human experts. Contrary to Artificial Intelligent-driven solutions based on supervised learning BHL does not require labelled information. A testing environment of IoT device...
Chapter
Nowadays, Internet of things (IoT) systems add connectivity to physical and common objects offering new possibilities, this systems have special features such as the low capacity of the devices and behaviour of the protocols used. These facts make cybersecurity in this kind of systems is critical. The current work uses a dataset is based on denial...

Batteries are one of the most important component in an energy storage system; they are used mainly in electric mobility, consumer electronic and some other devices. Nowadays the common battery type is the liquid electrolyte solution, but it is expected that in some year, the solid state batteries increase the energy density. Despite the type of ba...
Chapter
The significant advance in smart devices connected to Internet has promoted the “Internet of Things” technology. However, the success of this term comes with the need of implementing Intrusion Detection Systems to face possible attacks. The present research deals with the intrusion detection in a network with Message Queuing Telemetry Transport pro...

E-voting implantation is happening at a slower pace than anticipated. A plethora of technical and social challenges hinder a deeper implementation. In this article, the problem is addressed by applying a practical evaluation framework to two of the most relevant e-voting tools: Helios Voting and iVote from Scytl. The framework is strongly based on...

Thesis
Full-text available
The Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) have had a huge impact in the day-to-day lives of billions of citizens around the globe in recent years. Back in the early 2000s, it was anticipated that its range would also include public elections, as an integral part of what has been labeled as e-democracy. This dissertation aims at contrib...

The implantation of Remote Electronic Voting (REV) systems to Electoral Processes is happening at a slower pace than anticipated. One of the relevant factors explaining that reality is the lack of studies about the Cryptographic Schemes and Primitives applied to the existing REV solutions. In this paper, the authors review the main cryptographic sc...

Despite an early boom in the early 2000s, the adoption and generalized implementation of remote electronic voting (REV) systems in Europe has been slower than anticipated 15 years ago. Currently, apart from Estonia and to a lesser extent Switzerland and France, its use in legally binding elections still has a long way before being a reality in Euro...
