Installing ChipWhisperer/Using VMWare Virtual Machine
If this is your first time using the ChipWhisperer toolchain, the easiest way to start is to use a virtual machine with everything already set up for you.
- Install the VMWare Player software (free). Note that this program is available for Windows and Linux - if you're running a Mac, you're out of luck.
- Download a ChipWhisperer virtual machine image release. Look for the latest release (4.0.1 as of now).
- Unzip the VMWare image and open the file
ChipWhisperer xxxxx.vmxin VMWare Player.
Once you've opened this, you may want the latest version of the ChipWhisperer software - the version packaged with the VM image could be quite old. To do this, open LXTerminal in Ubuntu and run the following commands:
cd chipwhisperer git pull
If you ever want to switch versions, you can run
git checkout <release number>
git checkout 0.11RC will move back to the 0.11 release.
git checkout master will always give you the latest software.

There's an old Youtube tutorial of this setup available online.
