Community programme Key points at a glance

In 2019, Swiss Post disclosed the source code of an earlier version of its e-voting system with complete verifiability. Since then, we have continued to develop the system, while improving the documentation and auditability. The feedback from those who took part provided us with a key basis for designing the ongoing programme, in particular with regard to the options for cooperating with interested parties. We have updated and improved the procedure: the system is being disclosed step by step and transparently. Dialogue with experts is a core component of the disclosure process, which forms part of the e-voting community programme.

The disclosed items are listed and described below. The disclosure of the system is almost complete. The source code of the separate open-source verification software will be published in the autumn. All items can be viewed on GitLab.

The following additional functions are available to experts in order to test the e-voting system during the course of the year.

  • Verification software: the source code of the verification software will be released over the coming months. This means that the entire system will have been disclosed.
  • Public intrusion test: Swiss Post will carry out a public intrusion test at a later date as part of the bug bounty programme. You will have the opportunity to attack and attempt to penetrate Swiss Post’s e-voting infrastructure.
