Periodically, the system undergoes vulnerability and penetration testing by qualified experts to ensure maximum security.

Court of Rome - Sec. I - 2014
In 2015, the Judgment of the Ordinary Court of Rome on the adoption of the Eligo evoting platform: "A series of technological precautions suitable to prevent misuse or improper use of the voting and to offer the greatest guarantees of confidentiality, secrecy and freedom of expression of the vote."

Court of Rome - Sec. XVI - 2021
In 2021, the Judgment of the Ordinary Court of Rome on the adoption of the ELIGO evoting platform:
"Acts have been filed [...] from which it emerges that the electronic voting platform prepared by Eligo Evoting & Consulting appears to be suitable to guarantee the personality, freedom and secrecy of the vote. [...] Furthermore, the risk of possible theft of passwords or possible access of "Computer Pirates" into the electronic system is possible in the abstract, but one would fall into pathological hypotheses that cannot be eliminated entirely not even in the case of exclusively cataclysmic voting, as evidenced by the cases of allegations of electoral fraud even in electorlai compteations of greater riilevance."
