Call for Participation
Washington DC, USA – Sunday, August 10, 2008
Mayflower, Marriott Renaissance Hotel
(one day prior to CHES 2008 – located in the same hotel as CHES)
The workshop is located in the Colonial Room of the Mayflower Hotel.
This year’s FDTC workshop will feature two invited talks:
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
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.
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.
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.
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
