Key enumeration solutions are post-processing schemes for the output sequences of side channel distinguishers, the application of which are prevented by very large key candidate space and computation power requirements. The attacker may spend several days or months to enumerate a huge key space (e.g. 2). In this paper, we aim at preprocessing and reducing the key candidate space by deleting impossible key candidates before enumeration. A new distinguisher named Group Collision Attack (GCA) is… CONTINUE READING
