RTL-PSC: Automated Power Side-Channel Leakage Assessment at Register-Transfer Level [article]

Miao He, Jungmin Park, Adib Nahiyan, Apostol Vassilev, Yier Jin, Mark Tehranipoor
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose, for the first time, an automated framework, named RTL-PSC, for power side-channel leakage assessment of hardware crypto designs at register-transfer level (RTL) with built-in  ...  RTL-PSC first estimates power profile of a hardware design using functional simulation at RTL.  ...  Apart from power side-channel attacks and their corresponding countermeasures, another highly important topic in this domain is power side-channel leakage assessment.  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
Side-channel attacks that leak sensitive information through a computing device's interaction with its physical environment have proven to be a severe threat to devices' security, particularly when adversaries  ...  We believe that our results help practitioners who want to use automated leakage detection and researchers interested in advancing the knowledge and improving automated leakage detection.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was supported by The Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Award DE200101577 and Discovery Project DP210102670, the Blavatnik ICRC at Tel-Aviv University, a gift  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
The methodology relies on logic synthesis, logic simulation, gate-level power estimation, and gate leakage assessment to compute a ranking.  ...  Our results show that only a minority of the gates in a design contribute most of the side-channel leakage.  ...  Another tool, RTL-PSC. works at the register-transfer level of abstraction [16] .  ...
