CSE 5/7/8393 Security: Side Channel Attack

Course description:

Side channel attacks extract sensitive information from information technology devices through indirect means such as monitoring power flow and electromagnetic radiation. Methods of particular concern are simple and differential power analysis where the adversary monitors the power flow to a system and then extracts crucial information such as an encryption key code. This course will survey these methods allowing students to understand how they are implemented and to then formulate countermeasures to harden such systems.
