Just got back from a trip to Israel, mostly vacation but a couple of very fun days at the Electronic Voting Workshop organized by IDC Herzliya and Tel Aviv University. A great group of folks, some very lively discussion, and a very productive workshop in Israel before they deploy electronic voting machines (imagine that, debating the issue before deployment…)
I’ve posted my two talks: first a voting security overview:
then a talk on Helios and the latest news about the UCL deployment:
After the talks, my colleague Alon Rosen of IDC Herzliya organized an interview for me with Ynet, the most popular online news website in Israel. I don’t understand Hebrew, but I’m told the article is pretty good!
UPDATE: the Helios slides are missing an important mention of the three people who actually made the UCL deployment happen: Olivier Pereira, Olivier de Marneffe, and Jean-Jacques Quisquater. We just got news that our joint paper regarding this deployment was accepted at Usenix’s Electronic Voting Technology workshop in August. More on this soon.
