A New Variant of the Winternitz One Time Signature Based on Graded Encoding Schemes

Hossein Oraei; Massoud Hadian Dehkordi

Volume 14, Issue 1 , January 2022, Pages 1-11


  Digital signature schemes are used to guarantee for non-repudiation and authenticity of any kind of data like documents, messages or software. The Winternitz one-time signature (WOTS) scheme, which can be described using a certain number of so-called “function chains”, plays an important ...  Read More

A Time Randomization-Based Countermeasure Against the Template Side-Channel Attack

Farshideh Kordi; Hamed Hosseintalaee; Ali Jahanian

Volume 14, Issue 1 , January 2022, Pages 47-55


  The template attack is one of the most efficient attacks for exploiting the secret key. Template-based attack extracts a model for the behavior of side channel information from a device that is similar to the target device and then uses this model to retrieve the correct key on the target victim device. ...  Read More
