Late Nite FDL: Die, Diebold, Die!!
By TRex @ 8:04 pm
What is it going to take to make mainstream America realize that as long as we are voting on Diebold machines, our votes are vulnerable to tampering and fraud? It was late last night and deep in the comments on this post when Nate from Get in Their Face!! broke through with this bulletin about Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology and their demonstration of just how easy it is to rig an election on Diebold’s voting machines.
Security Analysis of the Diebold AccuVote-TS Voting Machine:
Ariel J. Feldman, J. Alex Halderman, and Edward W. Felten
The Diebold AccuVote-TS and its newer relative the AccuVote-TSx are together the most widely deployed electronic voting platform in the United States. In the November 2006 general election, these machines are scheduled to be used in 357 counties representing nearly 10% of registered voters. Approximately half these counties — including all of Maryland and Georgia — will employ the AccuVote-TS model. More than 33,000 of the TS machines are in service nationwide.
This paper reports on our study of an AccuVote-TS, which we obtained from a private party. We analyzed the machine’s hardware and software, performed experiments on it, and considered whether real election practices would leave it suitably secure. We found that the machine is vulnerable to a number of extremely serious attacks that undermine the accuracy and credibility of the vote counts it produces.
Watch the video and see if you don’t break out all over in tinfoil.
