In computer systems, information leaks from the physical hardware through side-channel signals such as power draw. We can exploit these signals to infer the state of ongoing computational tasks without having direct access to the device. This paper investigates the application of recent deep learning techniques to side-channel analysis in both classification of machine state and anomaly detection. We use real data collected from three different devices: an Arduino, a Raspberry Pi, and a Siemens PLC. For classification we compare the performance of a Multi-Layer Perceptron and a Long Short-Term Memory classifiers. Both achieve near-perfect accuracy on binary classification and around 90% accuracy on a multi-class problem. For anomaly detection we explore an autoencoder based model. Our experiments show the potential of using these deep learning techniques in side-channel analysis and cyber-attack detection.
