Scytl ensures clients are protected against Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities

Feb 7, 2018

Recent publications have shed light on a new class of security threats affecting computer systems. These vulnerabilities, better known as Spectre and Meltdown, have been found in the processors powering a vast number of computing devices – from PCs and tablets through to smartphones – as well as servers, databases and cloud computing systems. These vulnerabilities could allow hackers to steal sensitive data from memory without users being aware of it, by getting access to devices and running malicious code on them. Unlike other online voting technology solutions, Scytl ensures clients are protected against these vulnerabilities as it does not rely solely on communication channel security (SSL encryption) or server encryption but instead, implements full and in-depth end-to-end encryption and security.
