Differential Analysis of Round-Reduced AES Faulty Ciphertexts


This paper describes new Round Reduction analysis attacks on an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) implemen- tation by laser fault injection. The previous round reduction attacks require both of spatial and temporal accuracies in order to execute only one, two or nine rounds. We present new attacks by more flexible fault injection conditions. Our experiments are carried out on an 8-bit microcontroller which embeds a software AES with pre-calculated round keys. Faults are injected either into the round counter itself or into the reference of its total round number. The attacks may result to the use of a faulty round key at the last one or two executed rounds. The cryptanalysis of the obtained round-reduced faulty ciphertexts resorts to the differentiation techniques used by Differential Fault Analysis.
