Date & Time:

Friday 19 March, 2004


Dr Barbara Simons will summarize the findings of a paper she co-authored: A Security Analysis of the Secure Electronic Registration and Voting Experiment (SERVE). This critique of the security concerns surrounding Internet-based voting systems might have contributed to the Pentagon’s decision to call halt this experiment in e-voting. This study and the Pentagon’s response provides a case study in the broader issues surrounding the politics of e-voting research.
