SCALE (standing for Side-Channel Analysis and Leakage Explorations) is SIMPLE-Crypto’s training on side-channel analysis and leakage-resistance. It aims to help designers integrating our open source solutions in their products and more generally to provide the theoretical and practical background needed to design implementations with strong embedded security guarantees.

The training will be in three parts:

  • SCALE-I is on side-channel analysis basics (evaluation tools and theoretical background).
  • SCALE-II is on leakage-resistance (security definitions, model-level countermeasures and primitive-level countermeasures).
  • SCALE-III is on secure implementations (in software and hardware).
