DPA on Faulty Cryptographic Hardware and Countermeasures

  title={DPA on Faulty Cryptographic Hardware and Countermeasures},
  author={Konrad J. Kulikowski and Mark G. Karpovsky and Alexander Taubin},
Balanced gates are an effective countermeasure against power analysis attacks only if they can be guaranteed to maintain their power balance. Traditional testing and reliability methods are used primarily only to ensure the correctness of the logical functionality and not the balance of a circuit. Due to the hardware redundancy in balanced gate designs, there are many faults which can imbalance a balanced gate without causing logical errors. As a result, traditional testing and reliability… CONTINUE READING
