ISG Research Seminar 05 February 2014

05/02/2014 (11:00-12:00)

Contact: Lorenzo Cavallaro


Speaker: Elisabeth Oswald (University of Bristol, UK)

Elisabeth joined the Cryptography and Information Security group at the University of Bristol in 2006, after several years as lecturer at IAIK, Graz University of Technology. Her research interest is centred around the exploitation as well as minimisation of side channel leakage of cryptographic implementations. She currently holds an EPSRC leadership fellowship that allows her to concentrate on her research in this area. 

Title: Leakage resilient cryptography: theory vs. practice


The implementation of side channel countermeasures has evolved from considering inexpensive implementation tweaks that make some known attacks harder, to sophisticated methods that secure implementations against broad classes of side channel adversaries. In my talk I want to discuss this trend for a technique called masking and explain what more sophisticated methods can and cannot do for us in practice.
