All rights reserved.Cryptographic operations performed on an embedded device are vulnerable to side channel analysis and particularly to differential and correlation power analysis. The basic protection against such attacks is to randomize the data all along the cryptographic computations. In this paper we present a modular multiplication algorithm which can be used for randomization. We show that we can use it to randomize the modular exponentiation of the RSA cryptosystem. The proposed randomization is free of computation and induces a level of randomization from 210 to 215 for practical RSA modulus size.
