Abstract

Devices with a lack of countermeasures, which are defenses put into place to thwart an assailant, can be subject to physical attacks. These attacks can lead to the extraction of sensitive information such as keys that are used in cryptographic operations to secure for example intellectual property. Test Vector Leakage Assessment (TVLA) aims at being able to provide detection of information leakage using statistical analysis. This work presents multiple implementations of TVLA that aid in the testing of these systems and countermeasures, which is crucial in keeping information secure.
