Swiss govt offers reward for hacking its electronic vote system

Author:   |    Publish date:


The federal chancellery announced a dummy run election will be held from Feb 25 to March 24 and invited anyone who wants to display their online piracy talents to sign up at https://onlinevote-pit.ch. 
 
They can then "try to manipulate the vote count, to read the votes cast, to violate voting secrecy or to bypass security systems," it said in a statement.
 
The amount of the reward paid out will depend upon the level of intrusion achieved by each hacker. The biggest single prize, 50,000 Swiss francs, will go to anyone who manages to manipulate the vote count without being detected.
 
The Swiss authorities hope this exercise will help assure, or perhaps improve, the security of the new generation electronic voting system.
 
Regularly called upon to take part in referendums and votes, many Swiss electors prefer to cast their ballots over several weeks by post at polling stations and, increasingly, online. Electronic voting has been on trial in several Swiss cantons since 2004.
 
Late last year the government launched an initiative to establish online voting as a third option nationwide within two years.
