34c3 retrospective

It’s time again for my list of talks that I loved on the chaos communication congress. Sadly I wasn’t able to be there this year. Hopefully I will be back at 35c3. Someone kept me rather busy :wink: .

And now to the talks I saw on my couch in the few moments of free time I had.

Three weeks before the german elections the CCC published a paper highlighting problems in a software that is used to transmit preliminary voting results. In this talk they explain what they found and what happened after they published the paper
