Recent research trends in side channel attack on cryptographic modules and its countermeasure

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Cryptographic modules are now mounted on many commercial products for secure transactions and communications. On the other hand, a new class of physical attacks against cryptographic modules, which is called "side channel attack," is drawing much attention due to the non-invasive nature and effectiveness. This paper presents an overview of the research trends in side-channel attack and the related activities to counteract such attacks and evaluate the security of cryptographic modules.
