Side Channel

What is a Side Channel Attacks?

Side Channel is the fruit of more than 20 years of research. As a result, most of the cryptographic algorithms and their implementations into chips are subject to it. Our Side Channel Analysis tools include solutions for Hardware, Software and physical attacks on hardware products.

What is required for a Side Channel Analysis?

Securing a hardware against Side Channel attacks requires the tester to tackle three main points:

  • A measurement bench with the ability to collect valuable information,
  • A software platform able to manage heavy computation with flexibility,
  • Hands-on expertise on and knowledge of multiple variants of attacks.

We offer all the necessary side channel tools to keep the security of your hardware in check.

Which bench for a Side Channel Attack?

A professional Side Channel measurement bench needs to combine different assets. eShard has been developing this hardware after years of practice:

  • A good ergonomy and ability to set different probes
  • Automated XY stage for scanning and reproducibility
  • An observation camera to control the location of the probe

Why eShard software solution for a Side Channel Analysis?

It is necessary to perform the whole side channel experimental flow on the same platform from the data collection to the statistical analyses. esDynamic is the scientific platform that offers the perfect technology to power side channel anlyses with a lot of flexibility and the ability to compute high volumes of data.

  • Manage the trace collection: from the source to the data center
  • Create cartography of the leakage detection
  • Perform data processing, such as the trace alignment
  • Process side channel statistics with efficient computation

eShard's expertise right in your lab

Side channel is the fruit of more than 20 years of research. As a result, most of the cryptographic algorithms and their implementations into chips are subject to it. This is therefore necessary to get a good understanding of all kinds of attacks and their variants.

With esDynamic and the specialized modules, we reconcile the know and the how into a unique know-how technical and dynamic content: attacks are described, can be replayed and adapted to your use case.

  • Catalogues of attack including the latest developments: Side channel advanced, Deep Learning Side channel, Scatter and SM.X
  • Specialized libraries optimised for fast computation
  • Widgets to make analyses more visual
Starter Kit Chip Security by eShard

Starter Kits by eShard

Practical expertise can make the difference when successfully undertaking a side channel attack. Initially, Side Channel Analysis only targeted Smart Cards, but is now increasingly targeted towards complex System on Chip (SoC) devices.

Our Starter Kit is a real use case demonstrating all practical aspects of a successful side channel analysis on recent devices: from the bench setup to the secret key exhibition.

The hardware kit is delivered with the data traces and the dynamic content. And our catalog includes different use cases, including:

  • Side channel attack targeting an hardware implementation of an AES
  • Side channel attack targeting an ECDSA
