Download “Introduction to Differential Power Analysis and Related Attacks”

As part of Cryptpography Ressearch’s ongoing cryptosystem research activities, we have been analyzing how to improve security of protable cryptographic tokens, including smart cards. Over the past year and a half, we have been working with the smart card vendor community to address attacks we have developed including Simple Power Analysis, Differential Power Analasis, High-Order Differential Power Analysis, and other related techniques. These are technically sophisticated and extremely powerful analysis tools that can be used by a cryptanalyst to extract secret keys from cryptographic devices.
