Implementation of a Digital Lottery Server on WWW
This paper presents the implementation of a digital lottery server on WWW. The aim of this server is to offer an outcome that a group of users can agree to be random. The server allows users to define and start a lottery session, participate in that session, and verify its outcome.
While the scheme employs Cryptographic tools for purposes of security, it keeps their complexity to a minimum, so as not to complicate actual operations or adversely effect the ease of actual use.
