A Compiler-based Approach to Mitigate Fault Attacks Using SIMD Instructions
Alexander V. Veidenbaum,
University of California at Irvine –
Today’s general-purpose microprocessors support vector (SIMD) instructions. This creates opportunities for developing new compilation approach to mitigate the impact of faults on cryptographic implementations, which is subject of this work. A compiler-based approach is proposed to automatically and selectively apply vectorization in a cryptographic library. This transforms a standard software library into a library with vectorized code that is resistant to glitches. Unlike traditional vectorization for performance, the proposed compilation flow uses the multiple vactor lanes to introduce data redundancy in cryptographic computations. The approach has a low overhead in both code size and execution time. Experimental results show that the proposed approach only generates an average of 26% more dynamic instructions over a series of asymmetric cryptographic algorithms in the Libgcrypt library. Only 0.36% injected faults are undetected by this approach.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
