Product is rated as #3 in category Cyber Security

In this course, you’ll learn what every citizen should know about the security risks and future potential — of electronic voting and Internet voting. We’ll take a look at the past, present, and future of election technologies and explore the various spaces intersected by voting, including computer security, human factors, public policy, and more.

Instructor Details

J. Alex Halderman is an assistant professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Michigan. His research spans computer security and tech-centric public policy, including topics such as software security, data privacy, electronic voting, censorship resistance, and cybercrime, as well as technological aspects of intellectual property law and government regulation. He holds a Ph.D. from Princeton University. A noted expert on electronic voting security, Prof. Halderman helped demonstrate the first voting machine virus, participated in California's "top-to-bottom" electronic voting review, and exposed election security flaws in India, the world's largest democracy. He recently led a team from the University of Michigan that hacked into Washington D.C.'s Internet voting system. In his spare time, he reprogrammed a touch-screen voting machine to play Pac-Man

    Fascinatingand slightly scary! Anyone who votes should watch these lectures. Some of the “correct” quiz answers are dodgy (illogical factually incorrect) but don’t let this discourage you. Also, accepting peer marking is not for those with fragile egos or low frustration levels.

    Taught very well. Assessments can be frustrating (i.e. “select all that apply” questions) but it adds to the learning process.

    This is a great course. Excellent history of voting that puts everything in context. Good overview (with details) of how voting machines and systems are vulnerable today taught by a professor that is good at what he does and enthusiastic about the topic. Although it is not presented this way, this is a good course for those in CyberSecurity. One of the better Coursera courses available.

    If you are worried about electronic and on online voting systems in your country, you MUST take this course. The teacher uses real examples to illustrate the weaknesses of many voting systems around the world. After that, he gives tips and solutions to improve them. There’s no need of engineering or programming knowledge.

    Interesting review of historical voting mechanisms and their flaws. Easy to finish in one setting. Not to offend the course instructor, but ‘uhm’ how can I say ‘uhm’, every sentence starts, stops and ‘uhm, is interjected with filler words ‘uh’ ‘um’ etc. Extremely annoying at 1.5x speed.

    Excelente aproximacion al voto electronico: evolucion historica del voto, complejidades tecnicas (hardware & software), casuistica internacional, marco legal norteamericano, propuestas de mejora y todo sin olvidar una exquisita bibliografia complementaria para cada unidad formativa. Totalmente recomendable para quien desee profundizar en este campo.

    I really enjoyed this course. The reading material is a thorough listing of what I can continue to reference in my continued work in this area. I aspire to utilize these new skills in subsequent involvement in my local government elections.

    Very thorough and interesting take on the topic. I am bit horrified how unnecessary complicated can voting system become and i see now voting in my country in a bit different light even if it wasnt part of this course

    Muy buen curso, en especial para los que estamos llevando adelante la implementacion de un sistema de votacion electronico en la provincia de Misiones, Argentina. Nos demuestra que no estamos tan errados en nuestros pensamientos y que vamos por buen camino. Les dejo un link para que vean los que estamos haciendo: http://www.electoralmisiones.gov.ar/index.php/component/content/article/165 vocomi/369 principal vocomi

    Initially i gave a five star to this course simply because it deserved it . the instructor is fantastic and everything is great BUT: APPARENTLY WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU IS THAT YOU HAVE GOT TO WAIT FOREVER BECAUSE OF THE STUPID PEER GRADED ASSIGNMENT TO GET YOUR CERTIFICATE. according to the forums this issue has been going on for a YEAR and no body cares to do something about it therefore i really wanted to demote my previous rating. THIS COURSE DESERVES 5 STAR BECAUSE OF ITS MATERIAL AND (NEGATIVE) 5 STAR for the responses in the forum as well as the way the assignments were designed. its only fair to turn this into a degree program because it will take that long for you to finish it and im not talking about bachelors degree im talking about Phd WHY ????????? coz it really does take that long to get it , ive got my bachelors in 3 BUT I BET nothing is going to be solved ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
