How to perform RSA Key extraction with a mobile phone

Get ready for the real work. In this guide you will learn how you can hack any computer with a mobile phone. The proof of concept has been demonstrated by the 3 security researchers which found a way to extract RSA keys via Low-Bandwidth acoustig cryptanalysis. The researchers Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir and Eran Tromer explain that many computer emit a high-pitched noise. This noise is caused by their electronic components.

They have found that while computers are processing information, they will make a acoustic emanation. The acoustic emanation will hold information about the software that is running on the computer.

The security experts demonstrate in their ‘RSA Key extration via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic Cryptanalysis‘ paper, how they are able to extract full 4096-bit RSA decryption keys from computers and laptops.

The RSA Key extraction attack would allow them to extract the full RSA keys within one hour.
