Video-Cure for Internet voting – WARNING: Viewing may cause severe, permanent eInSecurity

For better and for worse the seriousness of the vulnerability goes well beyond what was reported two days ago; goes well beyond Internet voting in D.C; serious issues going well beyond voting.

Internet Voting Faces The Music: Hats off to D.C. and Michigan

Testers submitting votes complained of the annoying music playing on their computer after votng. In short order the music was identified, leaving testers wondering why D.C. picked the Michigan Fight Song. Now all has been revealed and the problems went well beyond the music.

Prof. Ron Rivest, MIT: Military/Overseas Internet Voting Risks and Rewards

Yesterday, MIT Professor Ronald L. Rivest provided his analysis of Internet voting for military and overseas voters.The talk centered on the balance between risks and rewards of using Internet voting vs. paper ballots for military and overseas voting.

“The risks of “internet voting” more than negate any possible benefits from an increase in franchise.”
