This paper shows the creation of cryptographic protocols that cover the stages that form an eyewitness electronic voting system without a communication channel directly attached to the equipment. The designed protocols combine most of the cryptographic primitives in order to generate high levels of security for the data. Each protocol assures the detection of any change to the files used and generated by the system, no matter if an adversary gains access to the different private keys or other elements that are used in it. The project focuses specially on the stages where the data are more vulnerable and the adversaries can gain access to them. The way to verify the security of the protocol is based in its performance and not in the cryptographic primitives that form it.
