The Frequency Injection Attack on Ring-Oscillator-Based True Random Number Generators [chapter]

A. Theodore Markettos, Simon W. Moore
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have devised a frequency injection attack which is able to destroy the source of entropy in ring-oscillator-based true random number generators (TRNGs).  ...  A TRNG will lock to frequencies injected into the power supply, eliminating the source of random jitter on which it relies.  ...  Acknowledgements Markus Kuhn suggested the experiments with the secure microcontroller and provided many components of the experimental setup plus valuable feedback on the paper.  ...

Producing Random Bits with Delay-Line-Based Ring Oscillators

Mieczysław Jessa, Łukasz Matuszewski
2013 International Journal of Electronics and Telecommunications  
One of the sources of randomness for a random bit generator (RBG) is jitter present in rectangular signals produced by ring oscillators (ROs).  ...  It enables the construction of many high frequency ring oscillators with different nominal frequencies in the same field programmable gate array (FPGA).  ...  Ring-oscillator-based RBG can also be attacked with the use of frequency injection attack [37] .  ...

A Random Number Generator Using Ring Oscillators and SHA-256 as Post-Processing

Szymon Łoza, Łukasz Matuszewski, Mieczysław Jessa
2015 International Journal of Electronics and Telecommunications  
To hamper different attacks, the generators should be implemented in the same chip as a cryptographic system using random numbers.  ...  In this paper the hash function SHA-256 as post-processing of bits produced by a combined random bit generator using jitter observed in ring oscillators (ROs) is proposed.  ...  The ring oscillators must also have significantly different nominal frequencies to prevent the injection attack [40] .  ...
