The paper, by three Columbia researchers, describes CLKSCREW, a new class of fault attacks that exploit the security-obliviousness of energy management mechanisms. The attack does not require physical access to devices or fault injection equipment.
In a paper published in PNAS, they call for a holistic approach to data science, one that weaves statistics and computer science into a larger framework while considering context and responsibilities when using data. Subscription.
