Practical Attacks against the MSP430 BSL


This paper presents a side-channel timing attack against the MSP430 serial bootstrap loader (BSL), extending a theoretical attack with the details required for a practical implementation. Also investigated is the use of voltage glitching to attack a disabled BSL. 1. SUMMARY The Texas Instruments MSP430 low-power microcontroller is used in many medical… (More)
