Too bad the oscilloscope the researchers used costs $14k - $32k USD depending on the model variation of the PicoScope 9300 series.

Also, holding the probe at a 45 degree angle to the system processor probably isn’t practical unless you remove the uncooperative cover from the IoT garbage you want to scan.

The full study is pay-walled by the publisher but not by the authors, so it’s legally available for free here (PDF download trigger):

Interesting paper

<<...Malicious codes commonly use packers, obfuscators, and polymorphism to hinder static-analysis and evade detection by making analyses difficult to reverse-engineer...>>

<<...Here we are interested in classifying into the 7 obfuscation techniques: Opaque predicates, bogus control flow, control-flow flattening using O-LLVM or Tigress, instruction substitution, virtualization, or packing...>>

Next Step in the arm race

NSA employee: "..uh boss? We need to beef up our EM noise generator algorithms to make it quasi impossible for these detectors to find out useful patterns and pollute their CNN..."
