Single-Trace Side-Channel Attack on SEAL Homomorphic Encryption Library by Furkan Aydin 28.04.2022


In this talk, Furkan will talk about the first side-channel attack on homomorphic encryption, which allows computing on encrypted data.

The attack targets the Gaussian sampling in the SEAL's encryption phase and can extract the entire secret message with a single power measurement.
