“Why don’t I agree that it is raw. The basic technologies are the same as in Moscow. Blockchain technology is applied as in Moscow.
Why does the CEC remember Moscow with a kind word when it talks about remote electronic voting? Because the basic approaches that have already been used before are unchanged, “- IA REGNUM quotes Lopatin as saying.
The technology of voting on the blockchain, created by Russian experts, has already been repeatedly covered in the media due to the massive leak of confidential data.
In August 2020, a database of participants in electronic voting on amendments to the Constitution was discovered on the darknet. The leakage amounted to 1.1 million lines of personal data. For each line, the seller asked for $ 1.5.
The authenticity of the leaked data was confirmed by the founder of DeviceLock Ashot Hovhannisyan.
While passport numbers alone are not useful, in addition to other personal data they have value..
For example, attackers can already identify the owner of the passport by the available data, together with the data of SNILS, TIN, credit history, writes Kommersant.
The BeInCrypto editorial staff previously reported that even during the September elections, the electronic voting system malfunctioned already in the first hours of work, unable to cope with the influx of voters.
The main complaints were about the impossibility of authorization in the system, and upon repeated attempts to log in, they received a notification of a successful vote.
Some voters could not track their votes in the voting monitoring system: as a result of a failure and reboot of the encryption system, about a thousand electronic ballots were frozen.
