Side-channel attacks on embedded systems

Side-channel attacks on embedded systems

Side-channel attacks on embedded systems are real. A small difference in execution time or power consumption may leak internal state, secret information and lead to system compromise.

In this talk we will explain the theory and put it to practice in demos.

During the evening you will get the chance to try out some attacks yourself in a mini-workshop after the talk.
