Challenges of Adding Side-Channel Countermeasures to NIST Post-Quantum Cryptographic Algorithms in Embedded Devices (A03c)
This talk will discuss traditional and modern techniques for implementing hardware cryptographic IPs for post-quantum cryptographic algorithms recently recommended by NIST for standardization. Then, this talk will discuss challenges around adding non-invasive side-channel countermeasures to those algorithms while deployed in hardware and provide performance and computational overhead. Next, we will provide insights for the cryptographic module verification program when pursued for such IPs. This talk will also provide discussions about high-assurance techniques for the applications that it is an important parameter.
