Intro

My name is Yuan Yao, I am a PhD student in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I am a research assistant in Secure Embedded Systems (SES) Lab . I received my master's and bachelor's degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University and Northwestern Polytechnical University , respectively.

Currently, I'm working on SCA (Side-Channel Analysis) and fault-side channel combined attack. For more information, please check out my reaserch work .

Research

Side-Channel Attack (SCA) is a kind of attack based on the information leakage from crypto-devices. Such as timing information, power consumption, electromagnetic leakage or even light and sound. Currently, I am working on power side-channel.

A popular countermeasure towards SCA is masking. To attack first-order masking, the normal approach would be to use a higher order DPA (Differential Power Analysis). In my research, I am working on exploring a fault-injection and SCA combined attack that can be applicable to attack the masked implementation of cipher.
