Recent side-channel attacks have shown that the security of smart devices is a matter of serious concern. Financial damage by attacking security systems can be the most fatal threat in the real world. We target a real-world smartcard widely used in Korea, embedding cryptographic features. Our attack was conducted in a black-box manner where everything is unknown for the target device except for public information such as standard documents and specifications.
