Recently, some ingenious new methods have been proposed for breaking cryptosystems such as RSA and DES. In this talk we give a survey of several of such developments, including Kocher's timing attack, and the faulty-computation attack initiated by Boneh-DeMillo-Lipton, and further developed by Biham-Shamir.
