How Secure Is Your Vote?

J. Alex Halderman, University of Michigan computer scientist, helped produce ten minute video demo of vote flipping in Diebold machine, some time ago. Halderman made a name for himself by accepting the DC area internet voting challenge just last month to test security of internet voting. The computer scientist led team took control in a matter of hours of most of the voting system, including database username, password and encryption key. Halderman, who believes it’s virtually impossible to make internet voting secure, changed all votes and installed a backdoor to surveil votes cast after the attack. A vote-hacking hero for our times is born and hats off to Professor Halderman!
