This assurance document is a preparatory guide for reviewers of the Pvote software for voting machines, which is based on the prerendered user interface approach. Pvote is implemented in a subset of Python.
This Technical Report contains the version of the assurance document exactly as presented to reviewers at the Pvote Software Security Review that took place at UC Berkeley on March 29, 30, and 31, 2007. The reviewers were Dan Wallach, Dan Sandler, Matt Bishop, Mark Miller, and Tadayoshi Kohno, and Ka-Ping Yee and David Wagner were on hand to present and explain Pvote and answer the reviewers' questions.
