AbstractProfiled DPA is a new method combined with machine learning method in side channel attack which is put forward by Whitnall in CHES 2015.[1]The most important part lies in effectiveness of extracting information. This paper introduces a new rule Explained Local Variance (ELV) to extract information in profiled stage for profiled DPA. It attracts information effectively and shields noise to get better accuracy than the original rule. The ELV enables an attacker to use less power traces to get the same result as before. It also leads to 94.6% space reduction and 29.2% time reduction for calculation. For security circuit implementation, a high order masking scheme in modelsim is implemented. A new exchange network is put forward. 96.9% hardware resource is saved due to the usage of this network.
