In this chapter the effect of implementation attacks on the security of pairings is examined. This is a particularly pertinent issue given the increasing efficiency of pairing algorithms, which have recently proved viable for implementation on resource constrained devices where such attacks pose a serious threat. Specifically, we discuss power analysis and fault attacks on a range of pairing algorithms. Countermeasures and their impact on performance are also described.
