Scytl security protocols ensure clients are unaffected by Poodle bug

Oct 16, 2014

Scytl´s end-to-end security protocols and encryption ensure that none of its online voting implementations are affected by the exposed vulnerability in SSL and the Poodle bug.
Unlike other online voting technology solutions, Scytl does not rely solely on communication channel security or channel encryption (SSL encryption) but instead, implements full and in-depth end- to-end encryption and security protocols. The Poodle bug/attack enables hackers in a man-in-the-middle scenario to decrypt the SSL communication channel when using SSL 3.0, as well as trick the server and the browser to enforce SSL 3.0 (the version that has been compromised.)

Full details on Scytl’s customers unaffected by Poodle bug are available here.
