Abstract:

Any electronic devices considered ‘secure’, and in fact any electronic device handling relevant information, make use of cryptographic services to ensure confidentiality, authentication and integrity of the processed data. These cryptographic engines implement mathematically secure algorithms, however due to leakages from their physical implementations they can reveal sensitive information during computation. This talk will present a brief overview on the design and evaluation of hardware countermeasures against side channel attacks and fault injection attacks that can be deployed on to these devices.
