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, 2007 and 2008. See:

FDTC04 FDTC05 FDTC06 FDTC07 FDTC08

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:

Ø       modelling the reliability of cryptographic systems and protocols

Ø       inherently reliable cryptographic systems and algorithms

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

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

Ø       adapting classical fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques to cryptographic systems

Ø       novel fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques for cryptographic systems

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

Ø       physical protection against attacks

Ø       fault injection based attacks using FIB laser and chemistry

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

This year’s workshop will feature two invited lectures (to be announced).

Workshop proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Services (CPS), will be available at the workshop and will be included in the IEEE Computer Society online store. This will be the 4th volume, following those of FDTC 2006 (Springer-Verlag), FDTC 2007 and FDTC 2008 (CPS). To be included in the FDTC 2009 proceedings, authors of accepted papers must guarantee to present their contributions at the workshop.

For FDTC 2006, 2007 and 2008 BibTeX records, see 2006, 2007 and 2008 respectively.
