"Tpmfail: a timing attack that can extract keys from secure computing chips in 4-20 minutes" https://boingboing.net/2019/11/14/descartes-destroyed.html
I'm not like super into keeping up on all these different kinds of attacks, but for once these timing attacks strike me as something that works on a cinematic hacking timescale. You can actually imagine someone breaking in, setting up this attack, and seeing a progress bar that the protagonist anxiously watches while other events transpire.
