Home News Understanding Leakage Detection Webinar

Join us for a webinar on the topic of Leakage Detection in software

Leakage detection plays an increasingly important role in the security evaluation of cryptographic devices. A particularly popular approach is the Test Vector Leakage Assessment (TVLA) framework, which specifies a suite of simple statistical tests tailored to either confirm or rule out many typical forms of side-channel vulnerabilities. However, if TVLA-style evaluations are performed without an adequate understanding of the statistical theory underpinning them, the risks are that tests may be misapplied, that outcomes may be misunderstood, and that conclusions may be overstated.

We invite you to join us for a free webinar “The pocket guide to leakage detection Webinar” on the 26th of February, at 15.00 CET. Through this webinar, we aim to help you grasp the intuition behind leakage detection methodologies, and walk you through the content of our in-depth online training that is freely accessible. For the already advanced attendees, we will reserve time for live questions. To register follow this link. 

The webinar will be hosted by:

Carolyn Whitnall is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol, specializing in the statistical aspects of side channel analysis attacks and detection. Her recent work has focused on the formal statistical properties of common leakage evaluation practices and how to design tests to be suitable for their intended purpose.

Davide Bellizia is a postdoctoral researcher at the Crypto Group of Université Catholique de Louvain, specializing in the design of secure hardware and measurement setup for side-channel evaluations. His recent works have focused on the design of physical and gate-level countermeasures and reduction of masked implementation’s effective security level through proper design of measurement setups.

Valentina Banciu has a Ph.D. from the University of Bristol and is currently a Senior Trainer / Security Specialist at Riscure. She is mostly involved in Side Channel Analysis and Fault Injection training, but also actively participates in hot R&D topics such as machine learning, leakage detection, etc.

Ileana Buhan has a Ph.D. from the University of Twente and is responsible for all training programs at Riscure. In addition, she is a guest researcher at the University of Radboud, focusing on leakage detection techniques and deep learning applied to side channel analysis attacks.

To better explain the concept of leakage detection, Riscure has created a special free training. You learn more about it and access the cource on this page. This training is also created in collaboration with the crypto research groups of University of Bristol and Université Catholique de Louvain, as part of the REASSURE project.
