Side Channel Analysis: Practice and a Bit of Theory
Author: Ilya Kizhvatov
The proposed talk is about side channel analysis of secure devices. This topic is not so often addressed in hacker conferences. The speaker will introduce the conference community to side channels, present an overview, and explain the state of the art in the this area, giving practical examples. After the talk, a listener should be able to understand if a particular device is falling under the threat of a side channel attack, how to protect it, and maybe become motivated to play around with side channel analysis just for fun.
