The Side-Channel Analysis Course offers participants an in-depth understanding of hardware vulnerabilities and the techniques to analyze and mitigate side-channel leakages. Participants will learn how to identify and exploit various side-channels, including timing, power, electromagnetic emanation (EM), and micro-architectural vulnerabilities like SPECTRE, MELTDOWN, and FORESHADOW. Through practical demonstrations and hands-on exercises, participants will gain expertise in conducting side-channel analysis, assessing leakage risks, and implementing effective countermeasures to minimize unintended side-channel leakages in their products.
