What's inside the AVC Edge?
It has a 486 SLE processor and 32 MB of RAM—similar specs to a 20-year-old PC. The election software is stored on an internal CompactFlash memory card. Modifying it is as simple as removing the card and inserting it into a PC.
First, that the tamper-evident seals could be removed without detection by election ofﬁcials was not an assertion made by the red team. To the contrary, the red team was able to access critical voting machine hardware (e.g., results cartridge ports, polls open/closed buttons) that are intended to be protected by tamper- evident seals without disturbing the seals themselves; that is, the seals can be bypassed without any physical evidence that an intrusion has occurred. Moreover, the ability to bypass the seals is due not to their design, but is rather a consequence of the physical construction of the voting machine enclosures themselves.
