Information leakage through physical channels is a major hurdle in embedded hardware security. This paper overviews the three key factors in the embedded hardware security space, focusing on gray-box (bounded resources) power analysis attacks: the adversary's knowledge and abilities, the security metrics used by adversaries' and security evaluators and gate-level countermeasures. A new design paradigm, dubbed pAsynch, that utilizes internal signals and random signals to uniformly spread the information-carrying energy within the clock period in a specific way with a resolution below the band-width and noise-filtering abilities of advanced measurement equipment is introduced. The advantages and design challenges introduced by the pAsynch paradigm are discussed.
