MS Open-Source Voting Machine Software

Technology Inceptions

Microsoft's new open-source voting machine software that makes hacking irrelevant is being put to test in US elections. The product named ElectionGuard is designed to establish end-to-end verification of voting machines. It enables a voter to check whether his or her vote has been counted. If there is an intrusion, the encryption attached to the vote will change. The development of the product has an important bearing on world democracies as the crucial concern everywhere is the integrity of the vote. The product is being put to test in technical forums and actual voting in local elections to identify flaws and come up with a fool-proof product. The ElectionGuard bounty program has invited researchers across the globe to identify security vulnerabilities in targeted ElectionGuard repositories. Qualified submissions are eligible for bounty rewards from $500 to $15,000 USD.
