Power Analysis 101: From Skipping Passwords to Breaking Software Symmetric Encryption
What’s side-channel power analysis all about? Theory-driven labs take you from the basics to breaking a real AES-128 implementation. Complete this course with virtual labs or plug in a ChipWhisperer (Nano/Lite/Pro) for real measurements.
Introduction to Side-Channel Analysis [LEGACY]
A totally free introduction to side-channel power analysis attacks. This free intro was first recorded in 2017 - so far we're keeping it around, but check out the newer courses for more recent info & recording setups!
ChipWhisperer was started by Colin O'Flynn (yours truly) to bring side-channel power analysis and fault injection knowledge to everyone. This was the first open-source platform including hardware and software that you could widely purchase (or even build yourself). This training uses ChipWhisperer to teach you both theory and application, and supporting it helps fund open-source resources that benefit the wider community.
"Written with wit and infused with hands-on lab experiments, this handbook puts you in the role of an attacker interested in breaking security to do good. Starting with a crash course on the architecture of embedded devices, threat modeling, and attack trees, you’ll go on to explore hardware interfaces, ports and communication protocols, electrical signaling, tips for analyzing firmware images, and more." - No Starch Press
