For the past year, we have been working to enhance the capability of Pipeline Emission Analysis (PEA) and have had a major breakthrough in the analysis and recovery of encryption keys from a device considered more secure than smartcards. Further information will be announced to the cryptographic community as soon as is practicable through the release of a paper detailing our results.
As you might expect, we have started to scan other chips for backdoors. These are good candidates as they are relatively new and used by the military. However, we are unable to comment on these devices until our research is complete.
We will be at the CHES Conference with our paper.
9 - 12 September
We have been asked by many people for more information about how Pipeline Emission Analysis (PEA) works. Here is all the relevant information about how the technology works. Everything you need to design your own system for your own research and development is in these files.
