Version 0.04 Released, Find me at DEFCON/Blackhat

A project log for ChipWhisperer®: Security Research

ChipWhisperer laughs at your AES-256 implementation. But it laughs with you, not at you.

Various updates of interest. First, version 0.04 of the code has been released. This integrates a lot of new material including the profiling attacks. The tutorials have been updated to reflect this. As before you can download some example traces so you don't really need the hardware to get started.

Speaking of hardware, I'll have a few PCBs with me at DEFCON/Blackhat next week which I'll be giving away as usual. And if you want to get your hands on a real device, the EFF Fundraiser called Vegas 2.0 will be raffling off an assembled ChipWhisperer unit

You can see the new tutorials on the uploaded documentation, or go to the assembla page for the latest release. I haven't had time to fully test it so more things than usual are probably broken, oops.

Oh and I uploaded a fancy new block diagram which attempts to show some of the interconnections. There's a lot of mostly unrelated blocks in the project so even this vastly simplified one looks a little crazy, but what can you do.
