Python Elliptic Curve cryptography Side-Channel Analysis toolkit.
pyecsca aims to fill a gap in SCA tooling for Elliptic Curve Cryptography, it focuses on black-box implementations of ECC and presents a way to extract implementation information about a black-box implementation of ECC through side-channels. The main goal of pyecsca is to be able to reverse engineer the curve model, coordinate system, addition formulas, scalar multiplier and even finite-field implementation details.
- It is currently in an alpha stage of development and thus only provides:
Enumeration of millions of possible ECC implementation configurations (see Configuration space)
Simulation and execution tracing of key generation, ECDH and ECDSA (see Simulation)
Synthesis of C implementations of ECC for embedded devices, given any implementation configuration (see Code generation)
Trace acquisition using PicoScope/ChipWhisperer oscilloscopes (see Measurement)
Trace processing capabilities, e.g. signal-processing, filtering, averaging, cutting, aligning (pyecsca.sca package)
Trace visualization using holoviews and datashader (see Visualization)
- pyecsca consists of three packages:
The notebooks below contain a showcase of what is possible using pyecsca and are the best source of documentation on how to use pyecsca.
- pyecsca.ec package
- pyecsca.ec.configuration module
- pyecsca.ec.context module
- pyecsca.ec.coordinates module
- pyecsca.ec.curve module
- pyecsca.ec.error module
- pyecsca.ec.formula module
- pyecsca.ec.key_agreement module
- pyecsca.ec.key_generation module
- pyecsca.ec.mod module
- pyecsca.ec.model module
- pyecsca.ec.mult module
- pyecsca.ec.naf module

pyecsca contains data from the Explicit-Formulas Database by Daniel J. Bernstein and Tanja Lange.
It also supports working with Riscure Inspector trace sets, which are of a proprietary format.
Testing & Development¶
See the Makefile for tests, performance measurement, codestyle and type checking commands. Use black for code-formatting.
