Re: a solution on the horizon to counteract detecting temperature through clock skew (on Tor Hidden Services)?

Microprocessor resistant to power analysis:


It's not clear to me that this would help. Power analysis is not the same thing as temperature-induced clock skew. AFAIK, temperature-induced fluctuations would actually be worse in asynchronous logic, although I think it would appear as performance fluctuation, not clock skew. Also, mainstream processors will not adopt asynchronous logic within the next decade, if ever.
