Cryptography Research, Inc.:
At the RSA Conference 2013, executives from Cryptography Research (CRI)
will lead two sessions that address side-channel attacks. The first
session includes a live demonstration on how keys can be extracted from
Suite B Crypto algorithms, while the second covers how developers can
efficiently test for side-channel leakage. CRI will also participate in
a day-long seminar teaching important, essential security and technology
Also at the conference, Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at
CRI, will participate as a judge of the Innovation Sandbox, a half-day
program dedicated to exploring and evaluating new and promising
information security technologies.
In its booth (#2225) at the show, CRI will be demonstrating and
discussing its differential power analysis (DPA) countermeasures and its
hardware-based CryptoFirewall™ core. For additional details, visit: www.cryptography.com

Title: Security Basics Seminar8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.Benjamin
Jun, vice president & chief technology officer at CRI and executives at
BioCatch, Bloomberg LP, Cheswick.com, iSEC Partners, Omgeo and RSA
In this day-long course, Benjamin Jun will join other security
thought-leaders to discuss some of the most important security
principles and technologies to participants. The course is designed to
lay a foundation of essential concepts that will enhance participants'
understanding of the advanced security issues that will be discussed
throughout the RSA Conference. In particular, Jun will lead a 45-minute
discussion on "Crypto101/Encryption Basics, SSL & Certificates" starting
at 1:15 p.m.
Title: New Technology Innovation Sandbox1:00 p.m.
- 5:30 p.m.Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at CRI,
and executives at Greylock Partners, In-Q-Tel, Sophos and Venture
In this half-day program, Paul Kocher and other leading security
authorities will explore and evaluate new technologies that promise to
transform the information security industry, now and in the future,
including the "Most Innovative Company at RSA Conference 2013" award.

Title: Suite B Crypto, Keys, and Side Channel Attacks9:20
a.m. - 10:20 a.m. - Room 310Mark Marson, technical director at
CRI and Pankaj Rohatgi, technical director of hardware security
solutions at CRI
NSA's Suite B approved crypto is strong when implemented properly. But
common implementations of AES, SHA-256 and ECDSA can leak secrets via
radiated emissions and power consumption measurements. This session will
highlight how keys can be extracted from all three algorithms and how
developers and product integrators can address side channel

Title: Is Your Design Leaking Keys Efficient Testing for
Side-Channel Leakage1:40 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. - Room
132Benjamin Jun, vice president and CTO at CRI and Pankaj
Rohatgi, technical director of hardware security solutions at CRI
From mobile apps to HSMs, many systems succumb to side-channel attacks.
Until recently, designers and evaluators confirmed product security with
costly and time-consuming penetration tests. Improved test approaches
can quickly and reliably identify whether a device has unacceptable
side-channel leakage. Developers can use these tests in conjunction with
existing automated security tools.
