A Unified Statistics-based Framework for Side-channel Attack Analysis and Security Evaluation of Cryptosystem

07/01/2013 – 06/30/2016
Funded By: NSF
Side-channel attack (SCA) has shown to be a serious implementation attack to many cryptosystems. Practical countermeasures only mitigate the vulnerability to some extent. Considerable research efforts on leakage-resilient cryptography have so far not led to practical leakage-resilient implementations... >>> Read More
