Fault Attacks on Pairing-Based Cryptography

Abstract : Over the last ten years, the use of bilinear maps or " pairings " as building block primitives within cryptographic schemes has become commonplace. This trend has been supported by insight into their security properties and methods for efficient evaluation; the latter aspect has provided results that now allow even embedded devices to execute pairing-based schemes. However, this raises questions relating to physical security in the same way as for RSA-and ECC-based schemes. Specifically, the secure deployment of a pairing-based scheme necessitates the study of related fault attacks. This chapter attempts to survey the state of the art in this respect; it aims to describe the main results in this area, and give an overview of potential countermeasures.
