Leading the Industry
The Unisyn OpenElect Voting System is designed to meet or exceed the security requirements defined as part of the 2005 Voluntary Voting System Guidelines (VVSG) Certification from the Election Assistance Commission (EAC).
- Security controls that limit or detect access to critical systems and data
- System functions that validate executables and election data before allowing voting to proceed
- Continual validation of redundant storage locations to ensure integrity of cast votes
- Comprehensive recovery and validation to ensure data integrity in the case of system failure
- Strong encryption and digital signatures to prevent and detect unauthorized access
- Physical measures, coupled with comprehensive procedures, ensure proper and effective security and integrity during equipment preparation, testing, repair and use
Unisyn Voting Solutions used an accredited third party test lab to confirm the proper implementation of security measures. We are releasing the report and results from Wyle publicly as part of our transparent review process. The accredited test lab simulated attacks on the system to confirm the effectiveness of the system’s security capabilities, employing test procedures approved by the EAC. Security tests focused on the ability of the system to detect, prevent, log and recover from a broad range of security risks. All systems were also tested for effective access control and physical data security.
