Technical and Socio-Technical Attacks on the Danish Party Endorsement System

Publikation: Konference artikel i Proceeding eller bog/rapport kapitelKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review


In this paper we analyze the security of the online Danish party endorsement system (DVE) and present two attacks: one technical, which we discovered during our study of the system in 2016 and which compromises the integrity of the endorsements stored in the DVE-database and another socio-technical, which allows parties to circumvent mechanisms to protect voters against abuse. To understand these attacks, we introduce the legal and technical frameworks of the DVE-system, analyze its problems, and describe a sequence of events that has led to endorsing three new parties that stood in the 2019 Danish Parliament election.
