This work addresses the security aspects of embedded systems, in different scenarios.
Mobile communications, secure identification cards, credit cards and in-vehicle communications are application fields where the data security is a major issue. In this context, the main tool to provide data integrity, confidentiality, authentication and non-repudiation remains the cryptography. Nevertheless, embedded cryptographic systems may lack side channel information, enabling some attacks. This presentation aims to discuss side channel attacks and countermeasures, introducing our working in progress concerning reconfigurable aspects for embedded cryptography.
