Secure Embedded Architecture

Our team first researched the vulnerabilities that the board may be susceptible to such as Cache Attacks, side channel attacks, electromagnetic attacks, etc. Based on the research, we would come with attacks to attempt on the developmental board. Then we were tasked to gather metrics based on the cryptographic algorithms, AES and RSA, by using a prototype secure boot process by a software only approach and only hardware-assistance to gather the metrics. The metrics gathered were execution times, memory footprint, and level of protection of the board. Levels of protection being how the board would respond to things such as the wrong key given with the data to be encrypted, the key being reversed, or a one-bit difference in the key.
