“Side Channel Attacks; an imminent threat”
Side channel attacks have always been part of the threat landscape. And they’re probably being ignored by the majority as the techie side of espionage; something for Governments to worry about. This viewpoint is probably shortsighted as side channel attacks are about to become headaches.
