Today's military systems are composed of hardware and software systems, many of which are critical technologies, and must be protected to ensure our adversaries cannot gain any information from a various analysis attacks. Side Channel Analysis (SCA) attacks allow an attacker to gain the significant information from the measured signatures leaked by side-channels such as power consumption, and electro-magnetic emission. In this research the focus on detecting, characterizing, and manipulating the power signature by designing a power signature estimation and manipulation method. This research has determined that the proposed method capable of characterizing and altering the type of power signature can provide a protection against adversarial SCA attacks.
