Protecting software against side-channel leakage

PI: Thomas Johansson (LU)

We intend to investigate attacks using side-channel leakage in software implementations, in particular towards libraries implementing standard security protocols and cryptographic primitives such as OpenSSL. The focus is on cache-timing attacks of different forms and will include both developing attacks as well as different protection methods, such as guaranteeing a constant-time implementation. The work will continue a recently established research direction for the group.
