In six days Hugh Davis will testify before Congress on the security, stability, and safety of Advice Software Inc.'s e-vote software. He is a world-renowned expert on software security, and his testimony will determine if the software will be implemented for use during the 2004 United States Presidential Elections. After his speech at an RSA conference in Amsterdam, he is handed a cryptic CD with information on the software from notorious hacker, Baff Lexicon.
