Classical Fault Attacks on Public and Symmetric-Key Cryptosystems
This chapter presents to the readers some classical fault attacks on both public as well as symmetric-key cryptosystems. We begin with the celebrated fault analysis of the decryption algorithm in RSA. This is followed by an ensemble of fault analysis techniques targeting the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). We end with a more recent fault attack targeting Grain-128 - an eSTREAM finalist and popularly used stream cipher. Nearly all the fault attacks described in this chapter can be achieved with low -cost fault injection techniques such as clock/voltage glitches.
