2-Day Training, April 26 - 27, 2011: Power Analysis Attacks and Countermeasures for AT Defense Applications

SAN FRANCISCO, California — March 18, 2011 — Cryptography Research, Inc. (CRI) will host a two-day workshop on power analysis attacks and countermeasures on Tuesday, April 26th, and Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 in our San Francisco offices. The prime audience includes system developers, architects, and evaluators for anti-tamper (AT) defense applications.

The workshop provides an introduction to timing attacks and power analysis attacks such as simple and differential power analysis (SPA/DPA). Participants will perform hands-on exercises to recover AES and RSA keys. Live DPA attacks will be performed on a mobile phone, ECC device, and SASEBO FPGA platform using the DPA Workstation™.

Presenters will examine practical design approaches to counter power analysis threats and review the state of associated U.S. and international security evaluation certifications, such as U.S. Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-3 and Common Criteria.
