Construction of Some Codes Suitable for Both Side Channel and Fault Injection Attacks

Using algebraic curves over finite fields, we construct some codes suitable for being used in the countermeasure called Direct Sum Masking which allows, when properly implemented, to protect the whole cryptographic block cipher algorithm against side channel attacks and fault injection attacks, simultaneously. These codes address a problem which has its own interest in coding theory.
