Pairings on elliptic curves are deeply researched and used in applications such as identity based schemes. Recently there have been several hardware implementations of the Tate Pairing. Along with the algorithms, their security has to be considered. This paper presents a correlation power analysis (CPA) attack against a Tate pairing implementation. Real power traces are taken from the FPGA implementation. The experimental result shows a successful attack.
