Swiss Post launches “public intrusion test” for its e-voting system

As part of its ongoing project to develop a secure and trustworthy e-voting system for Switzerland, Swiss Post has announced that a “public intrusion test” is now being run with “ethical hackers” from around the world.

In a statement issued today (8 August), Swiss Post said that it will make available sample voting cards that will enable hackers to simulate the vote casting process accurately on the voting portal and carry out a targeted attack on the system.

The intrusion test starts today and will run until 2 September.

Swiss Post will reward confirmed vulnerabilities identified as part of the intrusion test with up to 30,000 francs.

The confirmed findings are published on an ongoing basis on the specialist platform GitLab.

Swiss Post’s goal for the intrusion test is to uncover and rectify potential vulnerabilities and to improve the e-voting infrastructure.

The company expects to be able to make its system available for use by the first interested cantons in the course of 2023.
