HOST, San José, 1-4 May 2023

Partners Mines Saint-Etienne, CEA Leti and Texplained will present a paper and a practical demo of a physical attack allowing extraction of encrypted chips and 3 different countermeasures to prevent from them.




There are 2 ways to discover the results of our research:

  • Tuesday, 2nd May 2023 at 1:40 pm – Follow the presentation of our Scientific Paper (link to the page here)

This paper introduces Linear Code Extraction (LCE) attacks and three original countermeasures to detect an ongoing LCE

  • 2-3 May 2023 – Visit our booth to see a practical demonstration of the attack and the 3 countermeasures

We developed an experimental setup based on a functional simulation framework and an FPGA-based demonstration. This setup made it possible to study and assess the LCE vulnerabilities of our RISC-V target and to validate the effectiveness of our proposed countermeasures.
