In the current paper, we propose a novel mobile-based architecture that enforces security and privacy protection in the context of mParticipation. This architecture enables the citizens to cast their opinions anonymously and without limitation in time and space. It also removes the burden of preceding registration before any voting process. As the new electronic identity (eID) Cards are replacing the conventional identity cards in most European countries, we also discussed, in this paper, how the new German eID cards can be utilized for mobile participation. The use of the eID cards offers better flexibility and stronger security. A prototype implementation of this architecture is also described in this document, and the related performance is discussed.
