When it comes to implementing side channel measurement setups, very little information can be found online on what a good setup actually consists of. In this talk we will present all the physics at play and how to take them into account to design the ideal side channel measurement setup. Each point will be demonstrated with actual side channel attacks on the ESP32 AES engine, and new open source measurement hardware will be presented.
