"By placing a probe near a mobile device while it performs cryptographic operations, an attacker can measure enough electromagnetic emanations to fully extract the secret key that authenticates the end user's data or financial transactions."

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 71%.
Researchers have devised an attack on Android and iOS devices that successfully steals cryptographic keys used to protect Bitcoin wallets, Apple Pay accounts, and other high-value assets.
"An attacker can non-invasively measure these physical effects using a $2 magnetic probe held in proximity to the device, or an improvised USB adapter connected to the phone's USB cable, and a USB sound card," the researchers wrote in a blog post published Wednesday.
While the researchers stopped short of fully extracting the key on a Sony-Ericsson Xperia x10 Phone running Android, they said they believe such an attack is feasible.
CoreBitcoin developers told the researchers they plan to replace their current crypto library with one that's not susceptible to the attack.
The researchers said they reported the vulnerability to OpenSSL maintainers, and the maintainers said that hardware side-channel attacks aren't a part of their threat model.
At the moment, the attack would require a hacker to have physical possession of-or at least have a cable or probe in close physical proximity to-a vulnerable mobile device while it performed enough operations to measure "a few thousand ECDSA signatures." The length of time required would depend on the specific application being targeted.

Bitcoin core unsafe: openssl ... correct use of python-ecdsa. Multibit / bitcoinj safe correct use of bouncycastle. Blockchain.info Unsafe relies on the browser RNG (if any!) bitrated / bitcoinjs-lib Safe Hashes privkey, message and random. Armory unsafe (? - 90%) crypto++ seems to use a random value.

This class implements an Elliptic curve intended for use in Elliptic curve cryptography. An elliptic curve EC<p, a, b> for a (usually large) prime p and integers a and b is a group.The members of the group are (x, y) points (where x and y are integers over the field of integers modulo p) that satisfy the relation ... The “bad” option is also happening with bitcoin: it has gained excessive popularity NOT because it was technically very good (it never was) or had solid intrinsic value, or it was fast and convenient (it never was). 32 It has thrived because it has created huge expectations which temporarily bitcoin competitors could not meet. Base58 Encoding Table. Address format. Bitcoin P2PKH addresses begin with the version byte value 0x00 denoting the address type and end with a 4 byte checksum. First we prepend the version byte ... Python ECDSA has deployed RFC 6979 instead of generating a random number since September 9, 2013 6 Bitcoin Knots is a derivative of Bitcoin Core, which also generates the number k with nonce_function_rfc6979(). 7 Bitcoinjs-lib, a pure JavaScript Bitcoin library for node.js and browsers, also has deployed RFC 6979 by deterministicGenerateK ...
