Plug the Leaks: Side-Channel Attacks and Countermeasures
Moderator:
Alric Althoff - Leidos
After twenty years, side-channel attacks are moving to new horizons. In this session, we have papers presenting attacks on GPUs, at board-level, on the elliptic-curve library, and active countermeasures against EM attacks. The first paper proposes an active defense against electromagnetic side-channel attacks by adjusting the power grid impedance. It includes both formal and EM simulation-based validation of the proposed defense. The second paper focuses on the challenges of mounting timing-based side-channel attacks on GPU accelerators and demonstrates a practical attack breaking the RSA. The third paper shows how to extend power based side-channel attacks from one FPGA to another co-located on the same board. The final paper of the session shows a novel attack on an open-source crypto library that includes conventional mitigation against side-channel attacks.
