E-cognocracy [1], [2], [3] is a cognitive democracy oriented to the extraction and sharing of knowledte related with the scientific resolution of public decision making problems related with the governance of society. This model of democracy takes advantage of the potential of the knowledge society by means of the incorporation of the knowledge and the preferences of the actors involved in the decision making process. This is carried out by using different rounds to incorporate the preferences and a collaborative tool for the discussion stage. The technological security of the voting process has been studied in previous papers of our research group [8], [9], [10], [11]. Now we cope with the security of the discussion stage, taking into account either registered and non registered individuals.
