January/February 2007 (vol. 5 no. 1)
pp. 53-56
Matt Bishop, University of California, Davis

The use of electronic voting machines includes a wide range of security considerations that educators can use to highlight threat models, requirements, and trade-offs involving e-voting in the context of ongoing international discussions and current events. This article presents an informal case study to achieve five learning outcomes for students in a typical college (or even high school) classroom: understanding how to write a security specification; learning about different forms of security policies; understanding confidentiality, privacy, and information flow; recognizing the importance of considering usability from a security perspective; and identifying assurance's role in establishing confidence in results.
Index Terms:
