Central Election Commission in regards to the Supporting Software of the elections

On behalf of the Central Election Commission, Fox-IT has carried out an investigation regarding the security of the Supporting Software Elections (Dutch: OSV), in which additionally the process changes compared to the situation in 2017 have also been investigated. This software is used to add up the voting totals and calculate the seat distribution, based on the votes casted and counted in the polling stations.

The report contains vulnerabilities identified by Fox-IT in OSV, and clarifies how the electoral process can be better protected against possible manipulation of the electoral process. It is recommended to replace the current OSV solution before the parliamentary elections of 2021.
