I have a dumb question...
It seems possible to counterfeit results.
Do you have something that checks the results we send?

Yes, it is possible to counterfeit results, although often it'll be obvious from the distribution when one is a fake.

When I extract the final best design from the distributed computing run, I simulate it several times over myself to get a more accurate muon percentage, and of course, to check whether the design specified in the file really _does_ produce a good design for the accelerator.
