Adversarial Learning Inspired Emerging Side-Channel Attacks and Defenses

by   Abhijitt Dhavlle, et al.

Evolving attacks on the vulnerabilities of the computing systems demand novel defense strategies to keep pace with newer attacks. This report discusses previous works on side-channel attacks (SCAs) and defenses for cache-targeted and physical proximity attacks. We then discuss the proposed Entropy-Shield as a defense against timing SCAs, and explain how we can extend the same to hardware-based implementations of crypto applications as "Entropy-Shield for FPGA". We then discuss why we want to build newer attacks with the hope of coming up with better defense strategies.
