To better equip your classroom or training, the ChipWhisperer-Nano Learning Pack includes 20 devices at a lower per-device cost, all in one handy box.
The ChipWhisperer-Nano is the lowest cost platform for performing side-channel power analysis attacks in training and educational environments. This device has a smaller subset of features compared to the ChipWhisperer-Lite or -Pro, but still allows you to perform many of the tutorials and demos.
The use of synchronous sampling ensures that this low-cost device can be used for performing real power analysis of algorithms and devices. The built-in target is a STM32F030F4P6, which has 16KB of FLASH and 4KB of SRAM.
The target section can be broken off to perform attacks on external targets (best done with our CW308 UFO board system). This allows an external clock to be routed to the on-board ADC for measuring of external devices.
ChipWhisperer-Nano follows the same idea of the ChipWhisperer-Lite – providing a low-cost platform including both the measurement and target on one board – but it does away with the FPGA to reduce costs to a bare minimum. The result is a board that can be used for teaching workshops and classes, while still providing students with hardware they can keep.
Note: the ChipWhisperer-Nano has no clock glitching support and limited voltage glitching support, mainly because the glitching is not generated in a dedicated FPGA hardware resource like with the ChipWhisperer-Lite or -Pro.
The ChipWhisperer ecosystem is an open-source toolchain for embedded security research. All of the targets and capture hardware are supported by a Python-based capture application. The open-source nature means that you can modify the hardware and software for your specific needs. Whether you are developing your own algorithms or want to perform validation on proprietary targets, ChipWhisperer has you covered. ChipWhisperer runs on most computer platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux). You can freely download and use the open-source software to confirm functionality.
