Page 1 of 2 Java Card Application Side Channel Protection MSc Research Project Date: November 2, 2007 Introduction Java Card is the most popular technology for the development of smart card applications. It speeds up the development process by relieving the application programmer of low level issues. As a consequence application programmers may have a good background in Java development, but lack a thorough understanding of typical smart card security issues. Side Channel attacks are a security threat with large impact on smart card security. These attacks can be passive (observation and analysis), or active (fault injection). Smart card programmers aware of these threats can make their code defensive by hiding sensitive information and introducing fault tolerance. Scope Riscure has developed a series of secure programming patterns to assist developers in realising defensive code. A disadvantage of these patterns is that they decrease code maintainability and their application is labour intensive. The research question is to what
