tool to perform differential fault analysis attacks (DFA) against AES

Project description

phoenixAES: a tool to perform differential fault analysis attacks (DFA) against AES

Currently phoenixAES contains the following ciphers and fault models:

  • simple DFA R9:
    AES 128 encryption or decryption
    At least 4*2 faults in round 9 (between the last two MixCols)
    Ref: https://eprint.iacr.org/2003/010
    Current implementation discards automatically unexploitable outputs but may fail if more than one fault occur on the same column so be careful to record only outputs from single faulted implementations.
  • simple DFA R8:
    AES 128 encryption or decryption
    2 single faults in round 8 It simply converts the ciphertexts as if they were faulted in round 9 so the previous attack can be applied

See https://blog.quarkslab.com/differential-fault-analysis-on-white-box-aes-implementations.html for more background.

Installation

There is no dependencies, it requires only Python 3.

python3 -m pip install phoenixAES

Usage

It takes a file of recorded outputs, optionally preceded by inputs (which will be ignored). First record must be with the correct output, to be used as reference.
E.g. for AES:

#!/usr/bin/env python3
import phoenixAES

with open('tracefile', 'wb') as t:
    t.write("""
