Summary: Over the last decades computer aided engineering (CAE) tools have been developed and improved in order to ensure a short time-to-market in the chip design business. Up to now, these design tools do not yet support a design strategy for the development of side-channel resistant hardware implementations. In this chapter we introduce a novel engineering framework named AMASIVE (adaptable modular autonomous side-channel vulnerability evaluator), which supports the designer in implementing side-channel hardened devices. An attacker model is introduced for the analysis and the evaluation of a given cryptographic design in regard to application-specific vulnerabilities and exploitations. We demonstrate its application to a hardware implementation of the block cipher PRESENT.
