High Assurance: Side Channel Analysis on crypto algorithm in FPGA

High Assurance: Side Channel Analysis on crypto algorithm in FPGA

Analyze possible side channel attacks on crypto FPGA platform.

Keywords:

  • Crypto FPGA, VHDL, MicroSemi, Altera, Xilinx, SCA, DPA, EM, DFA, TEMPEST
  • Duration: 6-12 months
  • Context: Hbo, WO stage

Customized high-security hardware based on crypto algorithms in FPGA is vulnerable for Side Channel attacks. This is done via measurement of the power supply or Electro Magnetic emissions. Also Fault injection can be applied via Glitching, EM-pulse, Flash or even Laser to do a Differential Fault Analysis. The Inspector tool from Riscure, company in Delft, can be used to attack the target through correlation of captured data-traces.

Activities:

  • Analyze possible side channel attacks on crypto FPGA platform
  • Perform attacks
  • Investigate possible counter measures
  • Upgrade FPGA design
  • Prove effectiveness the new crypto platform
