Side-channel attacks: testing circuit reliability
What is LOKI?
The institute is working on a set of technology components to secure processors in cryptography modules, memory and the attack vectors involving the connections between these components.
On the hardware side, developments focus on understanding attacks in the context of new cryptographic algorithms and the patterns of use of IoT devices. The goal is to stay ahead of the hackers by concentrating on the most advanced attacks.
CEA-Leti's experts are developing new cryptography algorithms and new types of processors that IoT components can directly embed. They aim is to achieve memory security and to boost performance (computing power) to make them more suitable for the IoT and its challenges. They are also developing relevant countermeasures in terms of consumption and performance, such as automating countermeasures using dedicated compilers for connected devices.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
