PRESENTATION SLIDESPROCEEDINGS

This year’s FDTC workshop will feature two invited talks:

Silicon-Level Solutions to counteract Passive and Active Attacks
Sylvain Guilley, Institut Telecom, Département COMELEC, Paris, France

Aspects of the Development of Fault Resistant Hardware
Wieland Fischer, Infineon Technologies, München, Germany

REGISTRATION

Early registration rates (before July 17):

-          $ 260  regular

-          $ 200  student  (only full-time students)

Late registration rates (after July 17 but before August 6):

-          $ 330 regular

-          $ 260 student

The registration fee includes proceedings, continental breakfast, lunch and two coffee breaks. Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex and Discover) will be accepted only prior to August 6, 2008. If you register on-site you must pay in cash. The registration fee can be refunded only if a cancellation request is received before August 1, 2008. A cancellation fee of $ 50 will be applied.


ACCOMMODATION

The CHES hotel (the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Ave., Washington, DC, USA),  has agreed to extend the CHES special rate of $ 209 to Saturday August 9, 2008 as well. However, the current rate for this weekend night, on their web site, is only $ 199, so you may want to take advantage of this now.

WORKSHOP TOPICS AND ORGANIZATION

In recent years applied cryptography has developed considerably, to satisfy the increasing security requirements of various information technology disciplines, e.g., telecommunications, networking, data base systems and mobile applications. Cryptosystems are inherently computationally complex and in order to satisfy the high throughput requirements of many applications, they are often implemented by means of either VLSI devices (crypto-accelerators) or highly optimised software routines (crypto-libraries) and are used via suitable (network) protocols.

The high complexity of such implementations raises concerns regarding their reliability. Research is therefore needed to develop methodologies and techniques for designing robust cryptographic systems (both hardware and software), and to protect them against both accidental faults and intentional intrusions and attacks, in particular those based on the malicious injection of faults into the device for the purpose of extracting the secret key.

This annual workshop was started in 2004 and had follow-ups in 2005, 2006 and 2007. See the links:

FDTC04 FDTC05 FDTC06 FDTC07 (http://conferenze.dei.polimi.it/FDTC07)

Contributions to the workshop describing theoretical studies and practical case studies of fault diagnosis and tolerance in cryptographic systems (HW and SW) and protocols are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·          modelling the reliability of cryptographic systems and protocols

·          inherently reliable cryptographic systems and algorithms

·          faults and fault models for cryptographic devices (HW and SW)

·          reliability-based attack procedures on cryptographic systems (fault-injection attacks) and protocols

·          adapting classical fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques to cryptographic systems

·          novel fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques for cryptographic systems

·         attacks exploiting micro-architecture components (cache, branch predictor etc.)

·         physical protection of DRM schemes against attacks

·         fault injection based attacks using FIB laser and chemistry

·          case studies of attacks, reliability and fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques in cryptographic systems

Workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE-CS Press, will be available at the workshop and will be included in the IEEE Computer Society online store. This will be the 3rd volume, after that of FDTC 2006 (Springer-Verlag) and FDTC 2007 (IEEE-CS Press). To be included in the FDTC 2008 proceedings, authors of accepted papers must guarantee to present their contributions at the workshop.

Important Dates:

Submission deadline:       April 1, 2008 - CLOSED

Notification deadline:      May 1, 2008 - CLOSED

Final paper deadline:       May 30, 2008 (electronic submission, see IEEE-CPS author kit) - CLOSED

Submissions: extended abstracts of 5 to 10 pages, PDF format preferred.

E-mail the extended abstract to david.naccache@ens.fr and Jean-Pierre.Seifert@uibk.ac.at

Please provide name, affiliation, telephone, fax number and email address.

Final papers must be formatted and submitted following the instructions in the IEEE-CPS Author Kit.
