page 60: "In considering the behaviour of the voting machine hardware
from the perspectives of secrecy and accuracy, it has been assumed
that its embedded C code software operates exactly as expected.  [...]
 There is thus a significant reliance within the chosen system on the
behaviour of the embedded software of the voting machine.  [...]  The
Commission has not conducted a line-by-line review of the software
embedded in the voting machine."

page 61: "The Commission has observed no mechanism within the system
that would enable operators, observers and voters to satisfy
themselves independently that the hardware and software of the voting
machine are authentic and that they are the correct versions that have
been tested and certified and that have been approved for use by the
electoral authorities.  The system is essentially self-checking in
this respect."
