Google SafeSide: A project to understand and mitigate software-observable side-channels

SafeSide is a project to understand and mitigate software-observable side-channels: information leaks between software domains caused by implementation details outside the software abstraction. Unlike other side-channel attacks — e.g. measuring power use or electromagnetic emissions — software-observable side-channels don’t require physical access or proximity. Our early focus is on transient execution attacks and leaks from software cryptography implementations.
