International Search Report
We have received the International Search Report and are very happy with its contents. Only two citations; one is our old favourite Herbst et al’s 2006 paper “An AES Smart Card Implementation Resistant to Power Analysis Attacks”.
The other citation, EP3624390 [Secure-IC] is interesting in itself but doesn’t really have a bearing on what we do. EP’390 is aimed at providing resistance to side channel attacks [SCAs] and describes a neat way to mask at a finer granularity than usual. EP’390 is also general purpose and so is our invention. However, we do not mask, or add extra tasks, or add time delays. And without any additions we can tailor the leakages that SCAs depend upon from being jumbled slightly to pure white noise.
