No, because timing attacks don't really have anything to do with errors. A timing attack means analyzing the time it takes a cryptographic operation to complete leaks secret information. That actually has nothing to do with error messages; it's just as much a timing attack to look at how long it takes the server to decrypt something in a CTR mode (where the ...


Q: How long shall the RSA key be in order to be secure against practical attacks? A: Impractically large. This does not imply that RSA is unsafe against practical attacks; only that some of these attacks must be prevented by ways other than increasing the key size. That's because key size is not a parameter with a major impact on the efficiency of many ...
