eVoting Security Holes


I put a piece about Black Box Voting's report up at Between the Lines. The report found significant security problems. The investigation is a result of Bruce Funk's courageous action in letting independent security experts look at his Diebold machines.

Should we panic? No. But we ought not to dismiss this security concern out of hand either as Diebold seems to hope we will. More states should subject more voting machines to independent tests by real computer security experts. If there's nothing to hide, then this should be a relatively painless thing to do. The fact that Diebold and other manufacturers are so unwilling to be forthcoming about the security of their machines leads me to wonder what they're worried about.

It's interesting that the New York Times has released a story about this, but Utah's newspapers have ignored it.
