Generic side-channel distinguisher's aim at revealing the correct key embedded in cryptographic modules even when few assumptions can be made about their physical leakages. In this paper, Kolmogorov-Smirnov Analysis (KSA) and Partial Kolmogorov-Smirnov analysis (PKS) were proposed respectively. Although both KSA and PKS are based on the Kolmogorov-Smirnov (KS) test, they really differ a lot from each other in terms of construction strategies. Inspired by this, the authors construct nine new variants by combining their strategies in a systematic way.
