Σεμινάριο Τμήματος & CEID social hour
Ημερομηνία-χώρος: Παρασκευή 2 Νοεμβρίου, 3-5μμ, Κτίριο Β (Αίθουσα ΑΣ)
Ομιλητής: Δρ. Απόστολος Φούρναρης ΤΗΜΤΥ
Τίτλος: “Securing Systems through hardware means: Strong points, attacks and weaknesses in Hardware Cybersecurity”
Περίληψη: In this talk, an overview of the most important hardware based technologies that are currently used in order to protect security sensitive devices is made and the most important security gaps that such technologies may have are discussed. The focus points of such technologies are primarily focused on security tokens that can be physically associated to a host device to provide security services like smart cards or Trusted Platform Modules (TPMs). Possible vulnerabilities that may exist in a hardware security tokens are also described. More specifically, the lecture is focused on side channel analysis attacks and fault injection analysis attacks, showing how such attacks can be mounted and how they can compromise the most important assets of a Security token i.e. its cryptography keys. Side channel attacks exploit the information leaking from the physical characteristics of a Hardware or software security/cryptography implementation (power consumption, timing, electromagnetic emission, etc.) and can be easily mounted on a badly implemented Security token.
