Post-Doc: Towards Secure Implementation of Post-Quantum Schemes
IRISA, Rennes, France
We aim to analyze and protect post-quantum schemes against side-channel attacks (starting with code-based cryptosystems), in particular implementations submitted to NIST. Having found flaws in these implementations, we will design countermeasures at the compilation (assembly language) level, to appropriately harden the code while preserving the algorithm. During the project, the candidate will work on countermeasures specific to post-quantum schemes and their actual implementation at the compilation level. More than the binaries, the methodology, the tools, and the solutions to various faced practical issues will be of great interest to the community. Depending on the background and interests of the candidate, we are open to adjustments to the research strategies.
