In the context of fault attacks. What is the difference between fault measurement and fault model? I am reading a lecture and I can not understand for what measurement is used? Could you help me please?

  • $\begingroup$ Neither of these are common terms with a clearly defined meaning out of context. What's the context? I don't know of any use of “fault measurement” in cryptography. Is this an English term or a translation? $\endgroup$ Mar 10, 2018 at 11:28

    $\begingroup$ @Gilles This is obviously related to fault diagnosis and fault tolerance. Fault analysis is definitely known in the realms of cryptography and not uncommon at all (eg 1, 2, 3, etc.). In fact, you might/should have heard about "fault measurement" in relation to side-channel, timing, and/or fault attacks. $\endgroup$
