Research themes

The objective is to strengthen research in security of small devices that include smart cards, TPM (Trusted Platform Module), electronic labels or personal digital assistants in both aspects of logical and physical security. We are interested in the analysis of existing object, development of tools and methodologies to evaluate and reinforce the security of information systems.

Currently I have two research directions:

  • Logical security, the objective is to propose effective counter-measures against attacks on secure objects and to propose methods for evaluating the safety of these components
  • Hardware attack, improving attacks on secure objects either by passive listening (SPA/DPA) or using perturbation by laser or by electromagnetism for objects with or without contact (NFC).

For those that are not familiar with Java Card development I give some explanation and samples in the section How to Program.
