Fri, 22 Apr 2016 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Cyber Defense Club Seminar

Friday, April 22nd, 2016


WHAT? Internet voting seems like an obviously good idea, but its adoption has been very slow in the US and around the world. In this talk, we'll explore the reasons why, including the impact on voter turnout, issues of security and privacy, and social/political considerations.

WHO? Jeremy Epstein is a Senior Computer Scientist at SRI International, where his research focuses on voting system security and software assurance. He's currently on loan to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), where he leads privacy and security research programs. Prior to joining DARPA in Feb 2016, he spent four years leading the National Science Foundation (NSF), where he led their flagship cybersecurity program.
