2 Smart Card security analysis Smart Card security analysis Marc Witteman, TNO

3 Do we need smart card security?

4 What are the threats ? disclosure Confidentiality:unauthorized disclosure of information sender receiver modification Integrity:unauthorized modification of information Authenticity:unauthorized use of service

5 Whats inside a smart card ? CPU RAM test logic ROM EEPROM serial i/o interface security logic databus

6 Smart card security evaluations logical analysis: software internal analysis: hardware side channel analysis: both hw and sw

7 Logical analysis Communication Functional testing Protocol analysis Code review

8 InternalAnalysis

9 Internal analysis tools Etching tools Optical microscope Probe stations Laser cutters Scanning Electron Microscope Focussed Ion Beam System and more…….

10 Reverse engineering

11 Staining of ion implant ROM array

12 Sub micron probe station

13 Probing with eight needles

14 FIB: fuse repair

15 Side channel analysis Use of hidden signals –timing –power consumption –electromagnetic emission –etc.. Insertion of signals –power glitches –electromagnetic pulses

16 Power consumption in clock cycle peak slope time I ddq area shape

17 Power consumption in routines

18 Power consumption in programs

19 Timing attack on RSA RSA principle: –Key set e,d,n –Encipherment: C = M e mod n –Decipherment: M = C d mod n RSA-implementation (binary exponentiation) –M := 1 –For i from t down to 0 do: M := M * M If d i = 1, then M := M*C

20 Timing Attack on RSA (2)

21 Differential Power Analysis Assume power consumption relates to hamming weight of data Subtract traces with high and low hamming weight Resulting trace shows hamming weight and data manipulation

22 Fault injection on smart cards Change a value read from memory to another value by manipulating the supply power: Threshold of read value A power dip at the moment of reading a memory cell

23 Differential Fault Analysis on RSA Efficient implementation splits exponentiation: d p = d mod (p-1) d q = d mod (q-1) K = p -1 mod q M p = C d p mod p M q = C d q mod q M = C d mod n = ( ( (M q - M p )*K ) mod q ) * p + M p

24 DFA on CRT Inject a fault during CRT that corrupts M q : M q is a corrupted result of M q computation M = ( ( (M q - M p )*K ) mod q ) * p + M p subtract M and M: M - M = (((M q - M p )*K) mod q)*p - (((M q - M p )*K) mod q)*p = (x 1 -x 2 )*p compute Gcd( M-M, n ) = Gcd( (x 1 -x 2 )*p, p*q ) = p compute q = n / p

25 Conclusions Smart cards can be broken by advanced analysis techniques. Users of security systems should think about: –What is the value of our secrets? –What are the risks (e.g. fraud, eavesdropping) –What are the costs and benefits of fraud? Perfect security does not exist!
