Mock Election VMs
We have created virtual machines that can be used to simulate a complete election in the lab, using a reproduction of the KOV2013 software base. Simply download the VMs and import them into VirtualBox, then follow the instructions to conduct an election.
- Vote Forwarding Server VM (HES/VFS)
- Vote Storage Server VM (HTS/VSS)
- Vote Counting Server VM (HLR/VCS)
- Log Server VM (LOG/LOG)
- Voter’s Computer VM
- Patched verification app source code
This is the source code for proof-of-concept malware that we developed in support of our analysis. It is intended as a starting point for possible future research. The code on its own cannot be used to attack a real election, and criminals capable of conducting real attacks would necessarily have the skills to develop such code independently. We are not maintaining or supporting this software.
