Side-channel attacks are one of the major concerns for security-enabled applications as they make use of information leaked by the physical implementation of the underlying cryptographic algorithm. Hence, reducing the side-channel leakage of the circuits realizing the cryptographic primitives is amongst the main goals of circuit designers. In this paper, we present a novel circuit concept, which decouples the main power supply from an internal power supply that is used to drive a single logic… CONTINUE READING
