As we posited in our coverage yesterday of D.C.'s Internet Voting scheme which was hacked with the University
of Michigan fight song, J. Alex Halderman, asst. professor of electronic
engineering and computer science at the university, was, indeed, at the
heart of the hack.
He details tonight that he and a small team of students were happy to
participate in the test that D.C. election officials had announced,
with just three days notice, inviting hackers to try and penetrate the
system they planned to use this November, as developed with the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation.
