Researchers devise practical key recovery attack against smart cards, security tokens

Researchers optimize known oracle padding attacks to make them practical against cryptographic devices that use older encryption standards

A team of cryptographic researchers claim to have developed an attack method that can be used to recover secret keys in an acceptable time frame from cryptographic devices like smart cards, hardware security modules and USB security tokens.
