Tools, Attacks, Analysis

  • Body Biasing injection (BBI) – precision localized glitches with high power electrical pulses
  • Dual laser attacks with twin scan technology
  • Biasing true random number generators with EM harmonic emission
  • Perform double glitches and/or combine multiple trigger sources
  • Create real-time scripts which allow nano-second precision control of the setup
  • Visualize experiment results using data mining tooling an introduction

Case Studies & ‘FI in the dark’

Case study: secure boot

  • Identify sensitive points in the secure boot process
  • Prerequisites for attacking each sensitive point
  • Break down the attack(s) into simple falsifiable tests

Case study: Characterization of a SoC

  • Simple tests to identify fault models
  • Hardware elements susceptible to faults: where did the fault occur?
  • Software constructs susceptible to faults
  • Knowing the fault models: how can your implementation be improved?

Deep Analysis

Implementing complex leakage models

  • Use data post-processing to gain more insight into FI results.
  • Reduce the complexity of an FI attack by breaking down the testing into falsifiable/simple tests.
  • Use backside imagining/floorplans and FI results to navigate the die.

FI in the dark

  • Identify side channels applicable for a test scenario to gather information
  • Combine side channels and existing results to increase the attack success rates.
  • Case study: DFA-protected AES implementation
  • Case study: target without serial output.

Frequently asked questions

Do you do individual training?

Individual training is available for self-enrollers within enterprises, but we do not training for individuals outside of organizations. For individuals we recommend Self-Paced or Open training. If you are unsure, please get in touch by filling in the form below.

What is the minimum group size for your expert-led training program?
Minimum of 5 participants is required for our expert-led hybrid and classroom programs.
Are your programs delivered online or as classroom ?
Our training courses are delivered in various formats depending on the need and the subject matter. Programs can be deployed as online self-paced training, hybrid courses with expert-led sessions, or classroom-based instruction at Riscure facilities or the
customer's location. Our online programs blend self-paced e-learning, exercises, assessments, and in certain cases expert-sessions (like Q&A webinars or Group Exercises) with Riscure experts.
When can we start with the training/ what do the training schedules look like?

We do not have pre-defined dates for our training sessions. Instead, we aim to accommodate your preferred start time and schedule the spacing of training and relevant sessions accordingly. To ensure a seamless scheduling process, please provide advance notice of 3-4 weeks for our online group programs and 6-8 weeks for classroom programs, as this allows us to secure our trainers' availability. For online training by individuals (self-paced) any enrollment will be facilitated within days or weeks, depending on the level of integration with the customer training platform or HR system. For Open Training schedules, please, contact us by filling in the form below.

Does customer have access to the training materials after the program?
Participants in self-paced training have 180 days from enrollment to complete the courses, exercises, and tests, to receive their certificate of completion. After 180 days, they will still have access to the course materials, but they can’t receive the certificate any longer.
For expert-led group training, including online/hybrid and classroom formats, access to relevant training materials remains available after the training period. The formal training schedule with deadlines is coordinated between Riscure and the customer.
