AbstractTwo design techniques improve the robustness of Whitenoise encryption algorithm implementation to side-channel attacks based on dynamic and/or static power consumption. The first technique conceals the power consumption and has linear cost. The second technique randomizes the power consumption and has quadratic cost. These techniques are not mutually exclusive; their synergy provides a good robustness to power analysis attacks. Other circuit-level protection can be applied on top of the proposed techniques, opening the avenue for generating very robust implementations.
