Side Channel Attacks on Implementations of Curve-Based Cryptographic Primitives
Roberto M. Avanzi
Abstract: The present survey deals with the recent research in side channel
analysis and related attacks on implementations of cryptographic
primitives. The focus is on software contermeasures for primitives
built around algebraic groups. Many countermeasures are described,
together with their extent of applicability, and their weaknesses.
Some suggestions are made, conclusion are drawn, some directions for
future research are given. An extensive bibliography on recent
developments concludes the survey.
Category / Keywords: public-key cryptography / elliptic curve cryptosystem, hyperelliptic curve cryptosystem, side-channel attacks, countermeasures
