Summary

I used and adapted the Mastik toolkit for executing cache attacks in order to perform a Prime and Probe and a Prime and Abort attack. Around this code I built a benchmarking tool which ran each algorithm 1000 times and tracked their execution times. The Prime and Abort algorithm performed much faster than the Prime and Probe algorithm which means that the results were similar to the ones presented in the paper.
