Getting Started

Let us help you understand these attacks. We offer a range of educational material for various uses.

Start here to learn the fundamentals of embedded security by reading our "Embedded Security 101" guide. More information about how glitching and power analysis work can also be found here.

Jupyter Tutorials

Jupyter Notebooks are an interactive Python environment. They allow you to connect to hardware, perform power captures, plot data, and more.

Our tutorials use the Jupyter platform to teach you about power analysis attacks like DPA and CPA,  and fault injection attacks with clock and voltage glitching.

Check out the full list of tutorials from the open-source Github page:

You will need to set up the ChipWhisperer Jupyter environment for the tutorials to run. If you want to see what the completed tutorials look like, check out the partial list from the ChipWhisperer documentation:

Academic Usage

The open-source nature of ChipWhisperer and the wide availability of hardware make it perfect for educational use and academic research. You can use ChipWhisperer as part of an undergraduate or graduate course, or use ChipWhisperer in your research papers.

We sell a ChipWhisperer-Nano Learning Package (20 devices) for classroom and training purposes. 

ChipWhisperer is currently used or referenced in over 200 academic publications. See Google Scholar for the latest list.
