Keystrokes trigger interrupts which can be detected through software side channels to reconstruct keystroke timings. Keystroke timing attacks use these side channels to infer typed words, passphrases, or create user fingerprints. While keystroke timing attacks are considered harmful, they typically require native code execution to exploit the side channels and, thus, may not be practical in many scenarios. In this paper, we present the first generic keystroke timing attack in sandboxed… CONTINUE READING
