CT-RSA 2015: Just a Little Bit More

Extending our work from CHES 2014, we exploit a weakness in several standard curves to achieve an order of magnitude reduction in the number of signatures we need to observe in order to break the key. J. van de Pol, N. P. Smart and Y.Yarom, Just a Little Bit More.  accepted for CT-RSA 2015.

Information and Software Technology: A Comprehensive Pattern-Oriented Approach to Engineering Security Methodologies

Anton Uzunov is leading work into the development of a pattern-oriented approach to the engineering of secure software methodologies. Recent work in this space, accepted for publication in the Journal of Information and Software Technology, builds upon existing method engineering ideas to form a new comprehensive approach to engineering security methodologies. Developing secure software systems […]

Flush+Reload: a High Resolution, Low Noise, L3 Cache Side-Channel Attack

An early result from our work with DSTO on security and virtualisation is now available from the Cryptology ePrint Archive. Our work with DSTO focusses on understanding the benefits and limitations, in terms of security, in using virtualisation in real-time and defence systems. As part of this work, we have been able to identify a […]
