We argue that among denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, link-layer jamming is a more attractive option to attackers than radio jamming is. By exploiting the semantics of the link-layer protocol (aka MAC protocol), an attacker can achieve better efficiency than blindly jamming the radio signals alone. In this paper, we investigate some jamming attacks on S-MAC,(More)
We propose a language that allows agents to distribute data with usage policies in a decentralized architecture. In our framework, the compliance with usage policies is not enforced. However, agents may be audited by an authority at an arbitrary moment in time. We design a logic that allows audited agents to prove their actions, and to prove their(More)
We describe a policy language and implement its associated proof checking system. In our system, agents can distribute data along with usage policies in a decentralized architecture. Our language supports the specification of conditions and obligations, and also the possibility to refine policies. In our framework, the compliance with usage policies is not(More)
RFID tags are being widely employed in a variety of applications, ranging from barcode replacement to electronic passports. Their extensive use, however, in combination with their wireless nature, introduces privacy concerns as a tag could leak information about the owner’s behaviour. In this paper we define two privacy notions, unlinkability and(More)
Differential Power Analysis (DPA) attacks extract secret key information from cryptographic devices by comparing power consumption with predicted values based on key candidates and looking for peaks which indicate a correct prediction. A general obstacle in the use of DPA is the occurrence of so called ghost peaks, which may appear when evaluating incorrect(More)
Differential Power Analysis (DPA) is a powerful and practical technique used to attack a cryptographic implementation in a resourcelimited application environment. Despite the extensive research on DPA of AES, it seems none has explicitly addressed the fundamental issue: How far should we protect the first and last parts of AES in order to resist practical(More)
