GALS System Design:
Side Channel Attack Secure
2006; XII, 154
This thesis applies the Globally-Asynchronous Locally-Synchronous (GALS) design methodology to cryptographic-hardware design. By carefully partitioning the popular Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) into three independent GALS modules, it is possible to improve the security of an ASIC implementing the AES algorithm.
Frank K. Gürkaynak received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from the Istanbul Technical University in 1995 and in 1998 respectively. He then joined the Electronics and Computer Engineering Department of Worcester Polytechnic Institute and worked in the field of Analog and Digital VLSI Design. In 2000, he joined the Integrated Systems Laboratory of ETH Zurich and started to work towards his Ph. D. degree.
Keywords: Integrierte Schaltungen, Asynchrone Schaltungstechnik, Kyptographie, Digital Schaltungen, GALS (Globally-Asynchronous Locally-Synchronous), AES (Advanced Encryption Standard).
