This paper describes an attack on cryptographic devices called Differential Behavioral Analysis (or DBA). This is an hybrid attack between two already powerful attacks: differential power analysis (DPA) for the statistical treatment and safe-error attack for the fault type. DBA, simulated on an algorithmic model of AES appears to be very efficient. The(More)
Fault attacks against embedded circuits enabled to define many new attack paths against secure circuits. Every attack path relies on a specific fault model which defines the type of faults that the attacker can perform. On embedded processors, a fault model consisting in an assembly instruction skip can be very useful for an attacker and has been obtained(More)
Hardware Trojans (HT) inserted in integrated circuits have received special attention of researchers. In this paper, we present firstly a novel HT detection technique based on path delays measurements. A delay model, which considers intra-die process variations, is established for a net. Secondly, we show how to detect HT using ElectroMagnetic (EM)(More)
Injection of transient faults can be used as a way to attack embedded systems. On embedded processors such as microcontrollers, several studies showed that such a transient fault injection with glitches or electromagnetic pulses could corrupt either the data loads from the memory or the assembly instructions executed by the circuit. Some countermeasure(More)
Whilst clock fault attacks are known to be a serious security threat, an in-depth explanation of such faults still seems to be put in order. This work provides a theoretical analysis, backed by practical experiments , explaining when and how clock faults occur. Understanding and modeling the chain of events following a transient clock alteration allows to(More)
