Episode 2 – A Safe Voting Discussion with Michael Alan Spectre

Bob Blakley and Lorrie Cranor

In the second episode of Over the Rainbow Podcast, hosts Lorrie Cranor and Bob Blakely discuss the design and validation of secure voting systems with Michael Alan Specter, a cryptography and election security expert recently promoted from MIT, where he was a member of Internet Policy. Research Initiative and the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. They also discuss Michael’s previous work on technical and policy issues surrounding law enforcement access to cryptographic keys, leading to his co-authorship of the “Keys Under Doormats” report on the subject. Security of voting systems and voting procedures received national attention during the 2020 US elections.
