Etude de la vulnérabilité des circuits cryptographiques l'injection de fautes par laser.

Abstract : Cryptographic circuits may be victims of fault attacks on their hardware implementations. fault attacks consist of creating intentional faults during cryptographic calculations in order to infer secrets. in the context of security characterization of circuits, we have examined practical feasibility of some theoretical models of fault attacks. we used a laser bench as a means of the fault the beginning, we performed laser fault injections on a microcontroller implementing an aes cryptographic algorithm. we succeeded to exclude the logical effect of mismatched faults by temporal and spatial accuracy in fault injection. moreover, we identified extended new dfa attacks.then, we extended our research to identify and to implement new fault attack models. with the precision obtained in our earlier work, we developed new round modification analysis (rma) conclusion, the experiments give a warning for the feasibility of described attacks in the literature by laser. our tests have demonstrated that single-byte or single-bit attacks are still feasible with a laser beam that hits additional bytes on the circuit when the laser emission is accurate and associated with other techniques. they also revealed new attack possibilities. therefore, it conducted us to study of appropriate countermeasures.
