  •  tunneling (1+ / 0-)

    Tunnelling is slang for redirecting data packets through a machine or system of machines. It's typically done to avoid a restriction - ten years ago my university blocked all incoming logins, but left web servers open - so we "tunnelled" a webserver to let us remotely log into our machines.
    (google netcat to see an example package).

    I really like paper backups - or for that matter any non-volatile (write once) backup system.

    That raises the barriers to funny business way above any reasonable level - because it can always be checked.  The level of paranoia about voting machines can drop nearly to zero with a non-volatile backup.
