Among the hardware security evaluation toolkits that are publicly available, the ChipWhisperer has become very popular in the recent years. This framework based on low-cost open hardware platform and open source software, allow performing Side-Channel Analysis (SCA) like Simple Power Analysis (SPA), Differential Power Analysis (DPA) or Correlation Power Analysis (CPA) on Integrated Circuits (ICs). The ChipWhisperer gives the user an easy way to apply the recent research publications and understand the results. This evaluation step appears as essential in order to level-up the security of embedded systems. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to find a smart card reader compatible with the ChipWhisperer. In order to allow the community to study such targets which are ubiquitous in the world of security, but have a specific form factor, we will present through this work LEIA, a daughter board for smart card security assessment with the ChipWhisperer.
