R package: side channel attack

Side channel attacks are probably among the most dangerous attacks in cryptanalysis. However, we observe that many scientific papers presenting new side channel attack do not give any implementation of their attacks neither any data would allowed to verify the claimed results. In other side, when a researcher need to realize an attack, he/she has to implement it. It is the reason why we developed a R package available on CRAN: Package sideChannelAttack. This package has many purposes: first, it gives to the community an R implementation of each known attack/countermeasure as well as data to test it, second it allows to implement a side channel attack quickly and easily.
