In recent work, Anderson and Kuhn [3] described an attack against tamper-resistant devices wherein a secret key stored in EEPROM is compromised using a simple and lowcost attack. The attack consists of setting bits in the EEPROM using low-cost probes and observing the effect on the output of the device. These attacks are extremely general, as they apply to virtually any cryptosystem. The objective of the present work is to explore cryptographic techniques with the goal of raising the cost (in… CONTINUE READING
