PhD Forum

A central goal of the school is to enable communication between presenters and the participants. Therefore we will have a so-called PhD forum on Monday and Tuesday. The basic idea of the forum is that PhD students and researchers present their current research in a 5-minute talk. This will help them to get connected with other participants working on a similar topic. Furthermore, presenting at the PhD forum is a prerequisite for earning optional 2 ECTS.

Runtime Security Lab (Capture the Flag)

In this tutorial, you will learn about runtime security and what can go wrong if memory is accessed out of bounds, integers do overflow, etc.
Do you manage to read or modify protected memory? Can you manipulate the control flow to jump to a protected function? During a Capture-the-Flag competition, you will learn to attack vulnerable applications. If your attack is successful, the application will reveal a secret flag to you, for which you get points. Rumor has it that the best teams will be rewarded. Please bring your own laptop.

Physical Side-Channels Lab

In this tutorial you will use physical side-channel attacks to break the security of embedded devices.
First, we will use power analysis attacks and measure the power consumption of a microcontroller while it performs encryptions.
Using the power consumption of the device, we will extract the used encryption key.
Second, we will perform a fault attack and inject voltage spikes and clock glitches into the microcontroller to disturb its computations.
The resulting faults can then be used to bypass security checks or extract secrets.
All the experiments will be performed on a real microcontroller on a ChipWhisperer borard, which lets you easily measure the power consumption and inject faults.

Microarchitectural Side-Channels Lab

In contrast to runtime attacks, the CPU microarchitecture itself gives much more subtle ways to attack an application via side-channels. These side channels range from measuring execution time and detecting memory access patterns, over cache attacks (e.g., Flush+Reload) to Meltdown and Spectre attacks, leaking information across different processes and privilege boundaries. In this lab, you will experiment with various microarchitectural side channels.
