This paper discusses the implementation of an online
voting system based on image steganography and visual
cryptography. The system was implemented in
Java EE on a web-based interface, with MySQL database
server and Glassfish application server as the
backend. After considering the requirements of an online
voting system, current technologies on electronic
voting schemes in published literature were examined.
Next, the cryptographic and steganography techniques
best suited for the requirements of the voting system
were chosen, and the software was implemented. We
have incorporated in our system techniques like the
password hashed based scheme, visual cryptography,
F5 image steganography and threshold decryption
cryptosystem. The analysis, design and implementation
phase of the software development of the voting
system is discussed in detail. We have also used a
questionnaire survey and did the user acceptance testing
of the system.
