Hardware Security: Attack and Defense
TimeWednesday, December 8th1:30pm - 2:10pm PST
DescriptionSide-channel attacks (SCA) have become an important challenge in the design of protected devices. This session focuses on side-channel attack techniques and methodologies to analyze cryptographic hardware implementations. The first half of the session explores SCA attacks on NIST's Round-3 post-quantum digital signature standard finalist FALCON and modern processors using the micro-architectural state held by predictors. The third paper presents a novel methodology to perform cross-device profiling of power and EM attacks with the help of meta transfer learning. The session further explores a pre-silicon SCA resistance assessment at the RTL stage to offer significant speed-up on security evaluations.
