By the way, she never said what you claim she did. If I'm wrong you will provide a reliable source, I'm sure.

radioactive gold kept disappearing. After a while a staff member's wife or fiance turned up and had radiation poisoning to her hand--someone was taking the gold to make a wedding ring, and didn't know it was radioactive.
Source for that? I'd love to read more about this. I didn't find anything through google-fu.
This lab will demonstrate how power analysis of cryptographic hardware can reveal the key. We will be using basic electronic measurement tools such as oscilloscopes to demonstrate this side-channel attack.
You will be using a small hardware board (fig. 1) with a generic microprocessor programmed to perform DES encryption and decryption. The scenario is that you are the attacker and want to find out the secret key stored inside the board. There is no way of getting to the key directly, so you will need to perform a side-channel attack by measuring the power consumption of the board while the algorithm is running. The hardware board also allows the user to load a custom key in order to compare the power consumption.
Hey, I'm the author of that lab instruction. How on earth did you find this humble little document?

I, for one, use ROT26 to protect my comments. Everybody knows that it offers the level of security that slashdot really needs.
I find this whole audiophile thing pretty interesting, especially now something very similar starting to spill over into mainstream photography. JPEGS are out!, we need 16 bit RAW files for out holiday snaps! As a digital artist, I find it disturbing that people are going to let a JPEG artefact (real or imaginary) spoil their enjoyment of a picture: you're looking at it wrong!
I just couldn't let this pass by without comment. Yes, I am a flac kind of a person, and take pride in ripping music with the absolute highest quality. I am also a photographer, and yes, I shoot in raw format. Why? Because I do post-processing. On every photo I take. A good-quality jpeg is indistinguishable from raw until you start doing the least bit of editing. Then the differences will be clear as day and night. Ever tried rescuing an underexposed 8-bit JPEG and then try the same with a 12-bit raw? And don't get me started about color spaces...
JPEG is perfect for the holiday shooter, though, but personally I long for the 16-bit raw files (best available today on 35-mm SLR:s is 14-bit). That will take care of *some* of the imaging artifacts that come from the rounding errors between the sensor and the memory card.
