2nd WORKSHOP ON FAULT DIAGNOSIS AND TOLERANCE IN CRYPTOGRAPHY - FDTC 2005
Friday, Sept. 2, 2005 - Roxburghe Hotel, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
in Association with CHES 2005:
WORKSHOP ON CRYPTOGRAPHIC HARDWARE IN EMBEDDED SYSTEMS
August 29th - September 1st, Edinburgh (Scotland), UK
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.
Crypto-systems 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 optimized 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 workshop was started in 2004 and included 10 papers. The presentations are available at http://fdtc.deib.polimi.it/FDTC04.
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 based 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 Case studies of attacks, reliability and fault diagnosis and tolerance techniques in cryptographic systems.
Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings.
Negotiations are underway a journal special issue or section to follow the workshop.
