An encrypted key technology used to make hardware like mobile phones secure may not be as hackable as first thought.
A team of researchers from semiconductor developer NXP have shown that in fact it can be much easier than thought to extract the keys from a white-box environment.
Cryptographic keys protected by white-box software implementations are traditionally regarded as the best form of security. Keys can only to be extracted from white-box implementations by time-consuming reverse-engineering effort and complicated algebraic attacks.
