Questions tagged [fault-attack]

Attacks using errors injected at runtime into an implementation of cryptographic algorithms to cause misbehavior that leak information about keys or (plaintext) data, instead of (or additional to) using cryptographic weaknesses. The countermeasures against such attacks also belong here.

The Boneh-DeMillo-Lipton fault attack (RSA CRT)

I am trying to understand the Boneh-DeMillo-Lipton fault attack on RSA CRT signature. Suppose that we sign a message $m$ with RSA-CRT : $d_p = d \bmod (p-1)$ and $d_q = d \bmod (q-1)$ $s_p = h(m)^{...

Fault attack on RSA-CRT

I am trying to understand fault attack on RSA-CRT, and I found some example, which I don't know how to solve it. I know public modulus $N$, public exponent $e$, a value of faulty signature (where ...

Can deterministic ECDSA be protected against fault attacks?

In a paper by Barenghi and Pelosi, it was described that fault attacks could be used to derive the secret key when using deterministic ECDSA as described in RFC6979 by @Thomas_Pornin Deterministic (...

Statistical (innefective) Fault Attacks on DES

I read this paper: Exploiting Ineffective Fault Inductions on Symmetric Cryptography. I was wondering if the same idea is applicable for DES. I know both algorithms are symmetric but the idea is not ...
