Hi all, I am currently a student studying computer science and cyber security and have picked up an interest in the hardware side of things. I have taken classes like computer architecture and C programming classes, also building an 8 bit computer (Ben Eater’s) in my free time.
I want to start picking into the security side of hardware and understand I may need a higher level knowledge base or experience and want to ask is the chipwhisperer, and the tutorials they have, a good option to learn more. I started reading their documentation and all of it seem interesting and fairly complex. As I am a broke college student, I’m considering to pick up the Chip whisperer Nano and maybe a smart chip or Arduino nano to try and do a side channel attack on my own. To my understanding this board should be good enough for learning and basic testing.
I would appreciate any advice on how to further delve into this field, if the CW Nano can be viable or any other potential resources. Thanks!
TLDR: Want to learn hardware security, is the CW Nano a good option, what are its capabilities, best ways to learn, etc.
