OpenSSL AES Timing Attack

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote server is affected by a timing attack.

Description :

S-box lookup can hardly be performed in constant time in AES
implementations. Theoretically, remote attackers could recover AES
keys by performing a timing attack on these S-box lookup. No
practical implementation of a remote attack is known.
