SOLD-OUT Two-Day Training, January 24 – 25, 2012: Differential Power Analysis and Suite B

SAN FRANCISCO, California — August 22, 2011 — Cryptography Research, Inc. (CRI) will host a two-day workshop on power analysis and countermeasures on January 24 and 25, 2012 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 public keys. Live DPA key extraction 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.

A technical background is recommended. Please visit the page linked below for registration information and access to the full workshop agenda.
