Abstract: Side channel attacks are a major security concern for smart cards and other embedded devices. They analyze the variations on the power consumption to find the secret key of the encryption algorithm implemented within the security IC. To address this issue, logic gates that have a constant power dissipation independent of the input signals, are used in security ICs. This paper presents a design methodology to create fully connected differential pull down networks. Fully connected differential pull down network…
