Available Power Traces Tables

Tables Description

January 2015: The PostgreSQL server is no longer available. The only remaining method to retrieve the traces is to download them. The instructions are given at the bottom of this page.

The power consumption traces available for the DPA contest, are stored in a public PostgreSQL database. These traces are regrouped by acquisition campaign, where each campaign is stored in a distinct table. The tables entries contain the following fields:

The publicly available tables are described below. They correspond to the three leakage curves discussed at FDTC'08, in slides 21-24 of this presentation.

Table name secmatv1_2006_04_0809 secmatv3_20070924_des secmatv3_20071219_des
Traces count 81,089 81,569 67,753
Description Power consumption traces of the unprotected DES crypto-processor on the SecmatV1 SoC in ASIC.
The measures have been done during a temporal window containing the 16 nominal DES rounds.
These measurements have to be used for the contest.
Power consumption traces of the unprotected DES crypto-processor in the SecmatV3 SoC in ASIC.
The measures have been done during a temporal window containing the 16 nominal DES rounds.
Power consumption traces of the unprotected DES crypto-processor on the SecmatV3 SoC in FPGA (Altera Stratix).
The measures have been done during a temporal window containing the 16 nominal DES rounds.

Dumping the Contest Database in a Directory

To download directly the zip'ed campaigns of measurement, use those links (warning: each file is about one gigabyte large):

  1. secmatv1_2006_04_0809.zip (4 Gbytes, in 4 parts: part0, part1, part2, part3)
  2. secmatv3_20070924_des.zip (1 Gbyte, in 1 part)
  3. secmatv3_20071219_des.zip (6 Gbytes, in 6 parts: part0, part1, part2, part3, part4, part5)
In order to verify the integrity of those files after download, use the following commands: md5sum.
