Crash course to electromagnetic analysis for SCA by Riscure

This course is the perfect way to learn the fundamentals of electromagnetic analysis (EM) for side channel analysis. During 2h the participants to this course will learn about acquisitions of electromagnetic signal, finding the EM “hot-spots” and trace processing. Trace processing includes alignment, filtering, and compression. This is a fundamental step in the preparation of a correlation attack. We will walk the participants through different ways of processing the traces and show the importance of good signal processing on the success of a DPA attack.
This course is meant to be interactive and we will be working with Riscure’s Inspector platform for side channel analysis. Topics covered in the course:

  1. Session EMA-1: Physics of EM emanations
  2. Session EMA-2: Processing of EM signal
  3. Session EMA-3: Exercise: Finding EM hot spot/Design of EM Probe
  4. Session EMA-4: Exercise: DPA on EM traces
  5. (optional) Session EMA-5: Shielding and filtering of noise

Important information

Duration of the training: 2h
Number of participants: max 20
Date and time: Tuesday, June 3rd, 16:30 - 18:30
Admission is on the first-come first-serve basis.
