Brazil’s Superior Electoral Court (TSE) started the public safety test on the voting machines to be used in the 2022 elections. By Friday (Nov. 26), inspectors from a number of institutions are expected to have executed 29 attack plans on the equipment. The testing is protocol and has been carried out since 2009.

According to TSE head Luís Roberto Barroso, the court grants access to the system’s source code and enables the conduction of attack plans aimed at spotting system vulnerabilities. If any are found, they are fixed, and a new test is run in order to ascertain whether the system is still vulnerable, Barroso pointed out.

The attack plan covers secrecy breaches, the identification of distant electromagnetic signals, the capture of electric signals at external ports, and the sound identification of pressed keys.
