I read this article about e-voting over on Ars Technica. It’s good so go read it.
My problem is that e-voting would be a huge target for APT types of hackers. What would happen if Egypt was on an e-voting system and the US/Israel wanted to effect the outcome of the election to make sure the Islamist candidate didn’t get elected (e.x., Stuxnet)? Does anybody think that attacks with the full funding and power of the US government wouldn’t be successful?
PS. This is the e-voting machine that we voted on.
