Abstract:

Advanced Encryption Standard AES is a worldwide cryptographic standard for symmetric key cryptography. Many attacks try to exploit inherent weaknesses in the algorithm or use side channels to reduce entropy. At the same time, researchers strive to enhance AES and mitigate these growing threats. This paper researches the extension of existing Differential Fault Analysis DFA attacks, a family of side channel attacks, on standard AES to Dynamic S-box AES research implementations. Theoretical analysis reveals an expected average keyspace reduction of 2-889323 after one faulty ciphertext using DFA on the State of Rotational S-box AES-128 implementations. Experimental results revealed an average 2-888307 keyspace reduction and confirmed full key recovery is possible.
