As my history teacher always says (when that brainwad Dakota raises her hand for the millionth time), "Would anyone ELSE care to hazard an answer?"

Let me give it a spin. Back when I worked with Flynn, he had several far-flung workspaces. In any one of them at any given time, he might have been testing out a bold new computing technique (hell, he might have even built his own proto-internet in one of those cramped offices). Point is, there was a lot of activity going on in a finite area.

Just imagine the sheer wattage blipping through that system – the electrical meter would have been spinning so fast, it probably looked like a chopper taking off. But, what if you examined the output more critically?

You might have been able to map Flynn's activities.

Bingo! The side channel attack is all about quantifying data, information, and programs by measuring the electrical pull of a station.

So... we're going to become meter readers?

Nope – we're going to become meter outlaws. In advanced side channel "whatchamawhoozit" (to quote my esteemed colleague DonutLuvver), you not only monitor the pulses of a system, you manipulate them. But, it's going to take all of us to create the desired supersurge.

Ideally. It'll be like getting a collect call from all of us.

Let's just hope he accepts the charges.
