20080201398 | Determination of a Modular Inverse - In side-channel attack-resistant encoding methods, a return value (r) is determined as the modular inverse of an input value (a), by a module (M). A resistance to side-channel attack can be achieved with minimal restrictions on implementation on determination of the modular inverse with minimal technical complexity. To this end, in a first sub-step, a first product (d) of the input value (a) and a random number is generated (c), in a second sub-step, the modular inverse (e) of the first product (d) is determined by the module (M), in a third sub-step, a second product (b) of the random number (c) is determined by the modular inverse (e) and in a fourth sub-step the return value (r) is set to the same as the second product (b). | 08-21-2008 |
