ATHENE Lecture mit Amir Moradi | hybrid

Prof. Amir Moradi von der Ruhr-Universität Bochum ist zu Gast bei den ATHENE Lecture Series. Er spricht über: "Simply Secure: Tools for Automated Generation and Evaluation of Protected Hardware"

Zu den ATHENE Lectures sind etablierte nationale und inter­nationale Cyber­security-Expert*innen gelade, die Einblicke in ihre neuesten Foschungsergebnisse geben.
Die Lectures finden meist hybrid (vor Ort am Fraunhofer SIT in Darmstadt) statt, so dass auch die Möglichkeit besteht, sich nach dem Vortrag bei leckeren Snacks und Getränken persönlich mit den wichtigsten Akteuren der Cybersicherheit zu treffen und auszutauschen. Die Vortragssprache ist Englisch.
Die ATHENE Lecture Series werden organisiert von Prof. Haya Shulman, ATHENE | Goethe-Universität Frankfurt | Fraunhofer SIT.

Am 16.05. spricht Amir Moradi von der Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Vortrag: Simply Secure: Tools for Automated Generation and Evaluation of Protected Hardware

Implementing cryptographic functions securely in the presence of physical adversaries is still a challenge although a lion's share of research in the physical security domain has been put in development of countermeasures. Among several protection schemes, masking has absorbed the most attention of researchers in both academic and industrial communities. This is due to its theoretical foundation allowing to provide proofs, and model the achieved security level. In return, masking schemes are difficult to realize as the implementation process often is manual, complex, and error-prone, and requires a high level of expertise. This motivated the need for tools that allow the designers and engineers to evaluate as well as generate masked (protected) implementations through an automated fashion.

In this talk, in addition to the basics of hardware masking, a set of tools are presented, which supports developers in the process of designing secure hardware circuits. The toolbox enables (1) fully automated protection of insecure circuits against side-channel analysis attacks and (2) efficient verification of their SCA resistance. As a result, circuits dealing with sensitive data can be reliably protected against such implementation attacks even by inexperienced engineers and developers.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
