While we all agree that IoT security is important, there is a general doubt about the threats of physical attacks on IoT devices. Both side-channel attacks and fault attacks require the hackers to obtain the victim device, therefore its threat seems to be limited. In this talk, we will give an introduction to physical attacks that could be applied to IoT devices, and show that some of them could scale. We also show how IoT chips can be protected using advanced countermeasures.
