Internet voting not ready for elections, says DHS official:

Unresolved technological problems means Internet voting should not yet be deployed to U.S. elections, a Homeland Security Department cybersecurity official told a conference of election officials and watchdogs. “It’s definitely premature to deploy Internet voting in real elections,” said the official, speaking before the Election Verification Network conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico, March 29. “The security infrastructure around Internet voting is both immature and under-resourced,” he told the audience, citing National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) internal reports that summarize technical research on particular subjects. When it comes to end-to-end cryptographic voting techniques, the NIST report states that they “are largely still an academic effort.”
