RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis

  title={RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis},
  author={Daniel Genkin and Adi Shamir and Eran Tromer},
Many computers emit a high-pitched noise during operation, due to vibration in some of their electronic components. These acoustic emanations are more than a nuisance: they can convey information about the software running on the computer, and in particular leak sensitive information about security-related computations. In a preliminary presentation (Eurocrypt’04 rump session), we have shown that different RSA keys induce different sound patterns, but it was not clear how to extract individual… CONTINUE READING
