ADVANCED INFORMATION PROTECTION

Scytl provides elections systems with the highest levels of security, voter privacy, voter verifiability, election integrity, system availability, and access control.

Secure Ballot is fully compliance with the document NISTIR 7711 Security Best Practices. See: http://www.nist.gov/itl/vote/draft-nistir7711.cfm

Secure Ballot platform requires the voter and election official’s web browsers to access the application using an HTTPS connection. This is done seamlessly for the user and establishes an encrypted channel using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for the transmission of all data. The use of HTTPS also allows for the Secure Ballot domain to be authenticated to the user such that the voter and official can be sure of the site’s legitimacy.

Access control information such as passwords and privileges are stored cryptographically protected from disclosure to unauthorized entities.

Scytl secures each of its applications through the use of a physically secure data center, complete redundancy of critical resources, and the application of cryptography at multiple levels that ensure authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality.

The Secure Ballot application is hosted in a secure Tier III datacenter behind a layer of redundant firewalls and where it is under 24/7 physical and application monitoring to ensure the security and health of the system around the clock.

Furthermore, Secure Ballot runs on hardened operating systems updated with the latest security patches. At the application level, each connection over the Internet is required to utilize the HTTPS protocol to establish a separate authentic and encrypted communication channel with each user. This also allows the voter’s web browser to verify the authenticity of the Scytl web domain.
