      Title: Fault Attacks: An Algorithmic Perspective


      In this talk, we survey several fault attacks against commonly used cryptosystems, in both the symmetric and the asymmetric settings. More specifically, we explain how deliberate fault injections may allow an attacker to retrieve secret keys in AES, RSA and ECC cryptosystems. Countermeasures will also be discussed.


      Received his Ph.D. degree in applied sciences (cryptography) from the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium, in 1997. In 1998 and 1999, he was a post-doctoral fellow of the National Science Council, Republic of China. From 1999 to 2006, he was with the Card Security Group, Gemplus (now Gemalto), France. Since August 2006, has been with the Security Laboratory, Thomson R&D, France. His research interests include cryptography, computer security, computational number theory, and smart-card implementations. He is author and co-author of more than 70 scientific papers and holds several patents. He served in numerous program committees and was program chair of CT-RSA 2003 and CHES 2004. He is a member of the IACR and co-founder of the UCL Crypto Group.
