Abstract

This letter describes an improved sidechannel ttack on DES with the first four rounds masked. Our improvement is based on truncated differentials and power traces which provide knowledge of Hamming weights for the intermediate data computed during the enciphering of plaintexts. Our results support the claim that masking several outer rounds rather than all rounds is not sufficient for the ciphers to be resistant to side-channel attacks.
