Technion Hiroshi Fujiwara Cyber Security Research Center and the ACRC – Advanced Circuit Research Center
Invite you to take part in the
“ Advanced Topics in Security: Side Channels – from theory to practice” course
By: Prof. Debdeep Mukhopadhyay, IIT Kharagpur, India
Organizer: Prof. Avi Mendelson
5-day intensive course, Feb 20-21, Feb 24-26
(2 credit points)
This course will focus on understanding the different security threats on modern hardware design with special emphasis on side channel related aspects. In particular, the course will focus on basics of hardware design for cryptographic algorithms, emphasizing on AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), and ECC (Elliptic Curve Cryptography), as representatives for symmetric key and asymmetric key ciphers. The course will also discuss the following topics: techniques on finite fields, which have been used to develop efficient primitives, like S-Boxes, Finite Field multipliers and inversion circuits. Side channel attacks that measure power consumption. Detailed treatment starting from the basics to state-of-the-art statistical analysis would be presented. Evaluation criteria for side-channel secured products, in particular combination of common criteria and FIPS styles. Usage of fault analysis for cryptanalyzing ciphers, like AES. State-of-the-art techniques like Differential Fault Intensity Attacks (DFIA), which can be used to break conventional fault tolerance techniques. The course shall subsequently delve into the topic of micro-architectural attacks, focusing on topics like cache attacks, branch predictor attacks, and row-hammer attacks. Finally, it will discuss countermeasures against the side-channel analysis (e.g., against power and fault analysis).
The course will be taught in English
