Multidimensionality of the models and the data in the side-channel domain

Abstract : Since the publication in 1999 of the seminal paper of Paul C. Kocher, Joshua Jaffe and Benjamin Jun, entitled "Differential Power Analysis", the side-channel attacks have been proved to be efficient ways to attack cryptographic algorithms. Indeed, it has been revealed that the usage of information extracted from the side-channels such as the execution time, the power consumption or the electromagnetic emanations could be used to recover secret keys. In this context, we propose first, to treat the problem of dimensionality reduction. Indeed, since twenty years, the complexity and the size of the data extracted from the side-channels do not stop to grow. That is why the reduction of these data decreases the time and increases the efficiency of these attacks. The dimension reduction is proposed for complex leakage models and any dimension. Second, a software leakage assessment methodology is proposed ; it is based on the analysis of all the manipulated data during the execution of the software. The proposed methodology provides features that speed-up and increase the efficiency of the analysis, especially in the case of white box cryptography.
