Fault Analysis Symmetric Algorithms

Differential Fault Analysis on symmetric algorithms

With this module, you will learn about the main Differential Fault Attacks on AES. You will get familiar with the Piret & Quisquater DFA targetting the AES final rounds and the Kim & Quisquater DFA targeting the AES key schedule. During this training, you will learn how to compute differentials, characterize faults and recover a secret key from faulty AES outputs.
