Fault-Tolerant Quantum Anonymous Voting Protocol
In this paper, we propose a new fault-tolerant quantum anonymous voting protocol, which is designed to be robust against the collective-phasing noise and the collective-rotation noise. In the proposed protocol, the scrutineer, Charlie, prepares the photons sequence, which is used not only as the quantum ballot ticket, but also to authenticate the voter’s (i.e., Alice) identity. Especially it can realize the detection of Alice’s identity during the voting process. At the same time, the proposed protocol solves the problem of non-reusability of the quantum anonymous voting. Compared with other quantum anonymous voting protocols, our quantum anonymous voting protocol is more secure and practical.
