Cryptography Research to Hold a 1-Day Workshop on Side Channel Analysis on September 14, 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, California — July 9, 2010 — Cryptography Research, Inc. (CRI) will hold a one-day introductory workshop on side channel analysis on September 14, 2010, in San Francisco. This workshop will provide an introduction to side channel attacks, including Simple and Differential Power Analysis (SPA and DPA). CRI will describe practical design approaches to countering power analysis threats and review the state of associated U.S. and international security certifications.

Attendees will have the opportunity to perform hands on exercises, including SPA exercises to interpret power traces and recover secrets. CRI will also demonstrate a live DPA attack on AES implemented on an FPGA.

The target audience for the workshop includes developers and architects of hardware and software security products, as well as evaluators and technical writers of requirements for tamper resistant products. Technologists designing and testing tamper resistant systems for consumer products, financial systems, anti-piracy/conditional access systems, or government/defense applications are encouraged to attend.

Seating is limited; registration will close on September 7th or when capacity is met.
