Synopsis:

This course is dedicated to so-called side-channel information leakage in hardware devices. It focuses on both theoretical analysis and practical attacks. Students get familiar with various kinds of side channels and they get deeper insight in power attacks. Students learn to implement various profiled and non-profiled attacks and get familiar with higher-order attacks. They also get practice in both designing the SCA countermeasures and analyzing the amount and characteristics of the side-channel information leakage.

Requirements:

Basic knowledge of cryptographic algorithms and their implementation in HW, recommended completion of MIE-BHW (NIE-BVS) and/or MIE-HWB courses.
