Hacking the Conclave
Jamais Cascio, 18 Apr 05

During the run-up to last year's presidential election in the US, we posted a number of pieces about the security of voting technologies. Today, Bruce Schneier, a widely-admired security specialist, posted a piece to his blog about the security of the current election people are paying attention to -- that of the new pope. I'll let you discover his conclusions for yourselves, but he does an excellent job dissecting the ways in which the conclave system has developed protections against fraud and abuse, and finding the flaws that remain. Are the lessons replicable on a scale greater than the college of cardinals? Perhaps, perhaps not -- but they're certainly worth thinking about.
