Sequoia Voting Systems to make source code available
Sequoia has been under pressure to make its source code available for a long time. It has resisted efforts by various government groups, it has sued people, it has fought academia, and more. Wired has a good summary of these past actions – In Industry First, Voting Machine Company to Publish Source Code
Now all of a sudden they are claiming the virtues of the many-eyes principle over security via obfuscation. That’s a 180 degree turn, and yet Sequoia is trying to claim that their decision has nothing to do with the first release of code by the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation.
It seems unlikely to me that these two events are completely unrelated.
