Abstract

The manner in which a legislature votes is similar to a threshold signature scheme, and the power to sign legislation is similar to possessing shares to sign. The threshold k denotes the quorum number, the minimum number of legislators required to be present in order for legislature to be passed. Here we discuss techniques to ensure a secure electronic legislature.
