Rigging elections: Why Internet voting doesn’t work and can’t work

Internet voting

Interview with University of Michigan Professor J. Alex Halderman, who in 2010 (legally) hacked into an Internet voting experiment in Washington DC. Halderman explains how a mistake in a single line of the voting software’s code allowed him full access to change votes, view voters’ names and choices, and alter voting software to throw future votes. He was also able to complete the attack in a way which means it could have gone completely unnoticed by the system administrators. Halderman explains how he attacked the software and makes a clear and concise argument that Internet voting can never be secure with current technology. View the video here.
