Abstract : In [17], Lubicz and Robert generalized the Tate pairing over any abelian variety and more precisely over Theta functions. The security of the new algorithms is an important issue for the use of practical cryptography. Side channel attacks are powerful attacks, using the leakage of information to reveal sensitive data. The pairings over elliptic curves were sensitive to side channel attacks. In this article, we study the weaknesses of the Tate pairing over Theta functions when submitted to side channel attacks.
