Abstract:

This talk presents our research into the security of programmable smartcards, which are widely used devices that implement a wide range of cryptosystems, yet are mostly black-box with hardly any public information about their workings. By the end of the talk, you will learn
 - How we find vulnerabilities in smartcards using our open-source tools, even though the smartcards are often certified.
 - How we recover information about them, specifically without signing NDAs.
 - How we found and exploited the Minerva group of side-channel vulnerabilities in implementations of ECDSA.
 - How security certifications fail and how they can help researchers in finding, fixing and disclosing vulnerabilities.
