A Provably Secure and Efficient Countermeasure against Timing Attacks

Boris Köpf, Markus Dürmuth
2009 2009 22nd IEEE Computer Security Foundations Symposium  
We use this bound to derive a novel countermeasure against timing attacks, where the strength of the security guarantee can be freely traded for the resulting performance penalty.  ...  We give algorithms that efficiently and optimally adjust this trade-off for given constraints on the side-channel leakage or on the efficiency of the cryptosystem.  ...  We leave the investigation of min-entropic bounds for the side-channel leakage in unknown-message attacks to future work.
