Cryptographic algorithms often become insecure because vulnerabilities are introduced while refining these algorithms to implementations.  Side-channels, like differences in running time of a program depending on secrets, constitute an infamous class of implementation-level vulnerabilities. Our overall objective is to improve the trustworthiness of cryptography on the level of implementations, and, in particular, to detect and mitigate side-channel vulnerabilities.  The results will include novel program analyses, a security analysis tool, accompanying soundness results and guidelines for implementing cryptographic algorithms securely.
