Side-channel analysis (SCA) has become an important field of research at universities and in the industry. Of particular interest is constructive side-channel analysis, as successful attacks support a target-oriented associated design process. In order to enhance the side-channel resistance of cryptographic implementations within the design phase, constructive SCA may serve as a quality metric to optimize the design- and development process. This workshop provides an international platform for researchers, academics, and industry participants to present their work and their current research topics. It is an excellent opportunity to meet experts and to initiate new collaborations and information exchange at a professional level. The workshop will feature both invited presentations and contributing talks. COSADE 2010 also appreciates work in progress.

The topics of COSADE 2010 include but are not limited to:

Cryptography and side-channel analysis:

  • Constructive side-channel attacks in general
  • Stochastic approach in power analysis
  • Interaction between side-channel analysis and design
  • Advanced stochastic methods in side-channel analysis, especially in power analysis and EM analysis
  • Leakage models and security models for side-channel analysis in the presence and absence of countermeasures
  • Side-channel analysis under black-box assumption
  • Evaluation methodologies for side-channel resistant designs, acquisition and analysis
  • Side-channel leakage assessment methodologies, models, and metrics

Secure Design and Architectures:

  • SCA-aware design criteria and design techniques
  • Verification methods and models for side-channel leakages within the design phase
  • Methods, tools, and platforms for evaluation of side-channel characteristics of a design
  • Criteria for the design flow of countermeasures
  • HW / SW-acceleration for (constructive) SCA
  • Leakage-resilient designs
  • Countermeasures for HW / SW-Co-Design architectures
  • Countermeasures against implementation attacks at algorithmic-, logic-, register transfer- and physical level
  • Countermeasures against side-channel attacks on:
    • FPGAs
    • HW / SW Co-design architectures
    • SoC
Workshop Proceedings:

Accepted contributions will appear in the workshop proceedings published by CASED. Expected are extended abstracts but full papers are also welcome. COSADE 2010 does not claim an exclusive copyright on the presented work. This approach shall prevent submissions from conflicting with proceedings of forthcoming conferences and workshops. The participants will receive the proceedings as handouts and in electronic form.

Important Dates:
  • Submission of abstracts: December 06, 2009
  • Notification to authors: January 03, 2009
  • Final version due: January 25, 2010
