俄罗斯区块链投票网站在上线后不久就崩溃了

2020-6-29 12:30

 

昨日,俄罗斯基于区块链的投票系统在莫斯科和下诺夫哥罗德上线后不久就出现了故障。中央选举委员会成员安东·洛帕廷告诉俄罗斯新闻社,用于远程投票修改宪法的门户网站由于高峰负荷而瘫痪。


本月早些时候,Ledger Insights报道了俄罗斯使用区块链让公民可以投票来改变总统任期两届的限制。该国最高法院也在探讨区块链远程全体会议的单独解决方案。


莫斯科市长的官方网站显示,针对宪法修改的远程投票解决方案是由莫斯科信息技术部使用Bitfury的Exonum enterprise区块链平台开发的。网上投票系统于6月25日开通,将于6月30日关闭,线下投票将于7月1日结束。


“由于莫斯科和下诺夫哥罗德地区的居民立即去投票,因此出现了高峰。作为下诺夫哥罗德的策展人,我知道下诺夫哥罗德的人们正在积极参与远程电子投票,”Lopatin说。


莫斯科监督和观察全俄罗斯人投票的公共总部负责人伊利亚·马苏克(Ilya Massukh)说,虽然该网站很快就恢复了,但应该制定解决方案来应对大量涌入的选民,因为在投票开始和结束时,流量往往会达到峰值。


正在进行的COVID-19大流行引发了一场关于使用远程投票系统的辩论,一些人说现在还为时过早。今年早些时候,麻省理工学院的研究人员发现,overstock支持的区块链公司Voatz开发的投票应用程序存在漏洞。然而,Voatz反驳了这些指控,称麻省理工学院使用的是更老的版本。


上个月,Voatz为亚利桑那州共和党举行了一次虚拟大会。


与此同时,美国国会也在探索区块链和其他用于其两个立法机构远程运作的技术。在印度,选举委员会正与印度理工学院(IIT)就区块链投票系统展开合作。

 

Yesterday, Russia’s blockchain-based voting system faced a hiccup shortly after it went live in Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod. The web portal for the remote voting on constitutional amendments crashed due to peak load, Central Election Commission member Anton Lopatin told RIA Novosti.

Earlier this month, Ledger Insights reported on Russia’s use of blockchain to enable citizens to vote on waving he two-term restriction on presidential appointments. The country’s Supreme Court is also exploring blockchain for a remote plenary session with a separate solution. 

The mayor of Moscow’s official site shows that the remote voting solution for the constitutional changes was developed by the Moscow Department of Information Technologies using the Exonum enterprise blockchain platform from Bitfury. The online voting system opened on June 25 and will close on June 30, with offline voting on July 1.

“There was a peak in the load, because the residents of Moscow and the Nizhny Novgorod region immediately went to vote. As a curator of Nizhny Novgorod, I know that Nizhny Novgorod people are actively participating in remote electronic voting,” Lopatin said.

While the site was restored swiftly, Ilya Massukh, head of the Public Headquarters for Monitoring and Observation of All-Russian Voting in Moscow, said that solutions should be developed to handle the high influx of voters as there’s as traffic tends to peak at the start and the end.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has sparked a debate over using remote voting systems, with some saying it’s too early. Earlier this year, MIT researchers found vulnerabilities in the voting application developed by Overstock-backed blockchain firm Voatz. However, Voatz refuted the allegations and said MIT used an older version. 

Last month, Voatz held a virtual convention for the Arizona State Republican Party

Meanwhile, the U.S. Congress is also exploring blockchain and other technologies for the remote functioning of its two legislative bodies. In India, the Election Commission is working with premier education institute IIT on a blockchain voting system.
