A case study of reusing an electronic voting system Protection Profile from Europe to an African country
2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This study takes a protection profile written for European regions, and attempts to reuse it in an African country. The aim is to find out how much content is reusable from the source to the target Protection Profile. The source in question is; ‘BSI-CC-PP-0037: Basic set of security requirements for online voting products’, issued by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). The target is written for a case study of election proceedings in Nigeria as the security environment. A review and selection functions of the source protection profile was done and a study of the target security environment carried out. The final result shows that reusing security functionality between protections profiles is feasible, from a developed to developing country. The target contained an average of 90% reused content from the source.
