CHES CTF 2018

Training time!

It's time to training your network and work on your environment to be ready for the challenges. So go to the training tab and download the traces. Don't forget to create an account otherwise you will not be able to see the challenges later on!

Like in previous years, CHES is hosting a Capture the Flag (CTF) to gather student, academic, and industrial people together around a fun and engaging competition. For this year we are glad to announce that the challenge will be based on a Side-Channel analysis with a competition between Deep Leaning and Classic Profiling (template attack, horizontal attack, Random forests,...).

The challenges will be based on 3 algorithms, DES, AES and RSA each of them will tackle:

  • Non-portability issue
  • Portability issue
In total 6 keys are expected to be found. This is expected to be done in 6 round competition.

Good Luck to all of you!

General information

  • The goal of the challenges is key recovery in minimum time possible.
  • The competitors will have to get ready from 1st July to the 31st August by training their Neuronal Network or adjusting their parameters based on the training trace sets that will be released.
  • The competition will start beginning of September (see below for the timeline) by releasing the trace sets related to these 6 keys that need to be found.
  • The competitors will have to apply their favourite technique with any additional feature (re-sampling, alignment, data augmentation…) to find the keys.
  • Bear in mind these test/attack trace sets are limited in number. So you may not find the full key. This is expected!
  • 6 trace sets will be provided the first 4 will be for a training phase and 2 last will be for the challenge's rounds.
