[ NNSquad ] RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis

RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis

http://j.mp/1dmRAYj  (cs.tau.ac.il)

   "Here, we describe a new acoustic cryptanalysis key extraction attack,
    applicable to GnuPG's current implementation of RSA. The attack can
    extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from laptop computers (of
    various models), within an hour, using the sound generated by the
    computer during the decryption of some chosen ciphertexts. We
    experimentally demonstrate that such attacks can be carried out, using
    either a plain mobile phone placed next to the computer, or a more
    sensitive microphone placed 4 meters away."
