ChipWhisperer® is the ultimate toolchain for embedded hardware security research. A combination of open-source software, hardware, documentation and training gives you the ability the master hardware security problems.
The objective of the ChipWhisperer® project is nothing short of revolutionizing the entire embedded security industry. Every engineer/hobbyist who needs to use encryption in their design should be able to perform a side-channel attack, and understand the ramifications of such an attack on their product. The open-source nature of the ChipWhisperer® makes this possible, the objective being to engage the research community at large, while providing a low-cost reference hardware.
Getting Started with the ChipWhisperer
Not sure where to start with? While we are updating this page with better getting-started instructions, you might want to head to the online documentation. If you want to just follow along, a ChipWhisperer-Lite should be all you need. If you want to attack more targets, you might need some of our probes and other accessories. You can see them all in the online store.
Capture Hardware Versions
There are currently four commercial versions of the capture hardware. These are shown below:
ChipWhisperer-Lite 2-Part Version
Need something to practice on? We have a variety of “target” boards, which represent typical embedded systems. They can also be used as standard side-channel analysis targets for research purposes.
