Subject: RE: [election-services] OASIS Demo for NASS / NASED

David -

I think you missed the point.  Interoperability is one key item we must
demonstrate.  HOWEVER, in the US (and elsewhere I would argue) the
validation of the authenticity of a message is a major factor that we
must also demonstrate.  Definitely, for the VVSG, the security aspects
demand that we demonstrate this.

I would not bet the farm on DSig for VVSG verification - by far the best
factor IMHO is that the specifications are open public and therefore
independently verifiable with conformance suites that can valid the
ballots and records and counts.

Having multiple vendors show interoperability makes that point most
eloquently of course.
