So this is a pretty interesting acoustic based cryptanalysis side-channel attack which can crack 4096-bit RSA encryption. It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything hardware based, and RSA 4096 is pretty strong encryption, I wonder how they figured this one out. It makes sense though when you think about it, although I wouldn’t have […]

There seems to be a fairly serious attack being exploited in the wild that targets vulnerable ASP.Net web applications, so far there is a temporary fix but no official announcement on when a patch will be issued. The next scheduled patches should be pushed out on October 12th. If you had set up your server […]
I’m always fascinated by side-channel attacks where the attack is focused on the underlying architecture of the cryptosystem and the data echos it creates rather than the algorithm or implementation itself. Similar somewhat to the recent breaking of OpenSSL using power fluctuations. This time some researcher type fellas focused on the digital noise autocomplete webforms […]
