Why ChipWhisperer?

This training comes from the people behind the first complete open-source toolchain for side-channel power analysis.

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.

Breaking Embedded Security with Hardware Attacks by Colin O'Flynn and Jasper van Woudenberg

"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

Courses do not require hardware to complete the majority of the labs. However, the student experience is significantly improved with any of the "hardware options", as it allows you to change and recompile the firmware. See specific courses for recommended hardware options.
