• Electronic Voting Trials in Scotland discussions (w/ British Computer Society)
    The Scottish Government have committed to trialling electronic voting as part of its digital strategy. In July 2018, Aberdeen City Council put out a procurement notice for an electronic voting system for Aberdeenshire Council and the Highland Council. Electronic voting has been promoted as a way to engage a new generation of voters, but at what costs? Can electronic voting satisfy the requirements for a vote to be anonymous, verifiable, and secure? Open Rights Group have been an independent observer at trials of electronic voting in the United Kingdom and made up part of a group of security researchers that assessed the 2014 general election in Estonia. This event will see Open Rights Group present the results of that research, look at case studies from other parts of the world and discuss with British Computer Society members and ORG members the pressing questions for a trial of electronic voting: What standards should underpin an electronic voting trial? What identity attributes should be required for assurance on the system? Who should be involved the audit of the system?

    We will be meeting at 57North Hacklab to bring together like minded people, discuss digital freedoms and explore the use of cryptographic tools. Discuss digital rights issues that are in the news. Learn how you can help to protect your rights in a digital world. Bring a smartphone or laptop and browse the web anonymously, learn about these technologies and chat about the reasons we need them. • "Do average people really need this kind of security? Yes. They may be planning a political campaign, discussing taxes, or having an illicit affair. They may be designing a new product, discussing a marketing strategy, or planning a hostile business takeover. Or they may be living in a country that does not respect the rights of privacy of its citizens. They may be doing something that they feel shouldn't be illegal, but is. For whatever reason, the data and communications are personal, private, and no one else's business." -- Bruce Schneier, Applied Cryptography - Second Edition (https://www.schneier.com/book-applied-2preface.html) This event is co-organised by ORG Aberdeen and FSFE Aberdeen.
