Black Hat USA 2018:
A History of Voting Machine Vulnerabilities & Persistent Hacks

For the past decade, researchers have been discovering vulnerabilities of voting machine models, even holding hacking competitions to publicly test theories and demonstrate exploit paths. Recent allegations of voting machine tampering, nation-state interference and other security breaches surrounding the United States Presidential Election have increased awareness and attention on voting policies and machine weaknesses.

Carsten Schuermann, Associate Professor at IT University of Copenhagen will present “Lessons from Virginia - A Comparative Forensic Analysis of WinVote Voting Machines” at Black Hat USA 2018.
