Physical Analysis & Cryptography Engineering (PACE) team was established to lay foundations of research on hardware security. Over the years, PACE has emerged as a leading laboratory conducting cutting-edge research by developing strong capabilities in non-invasive to semi-invasive security evaluation methods. The focus is on all aspects of cryptographic engineering, and in particular on side-channel and fault analysis. The developed equipment facility and collaboration with leading research groups worldwide allows PACE team to constantly improve its knowledge and capabilities.
Research at PACE has made significant impact on the cryptographic engineering community worldwide. Some of the works are highlighted in the following:
- Members of the group have contributed to global security standards: International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/ International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 15408-1:2009 and ISO/ IEC 29192-2:2012.
- Demonstrated the first ever practical combined side-channel and differential fault attack on block ciphers
- Revealed a significant vulnerability in android phones allowing PIN recovery with 99% accuracy, featured in worldwide media.
- Demonstrated first ever practical fault attack on Deep Neural Networks.
