  8. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Physical Unclonable Functions

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10A02

    LIT accomplished all Phase I goals and technical objectives. In Phase I LIT produced an effective Random Number Generator (RNG) and tested two PUF designs. The PUF designs showed greatly improved Entropy and Stability over other technologies. LITs Entropy Goal for Phase II is 100% (already proven by analysis) and the Stability goal is one bit error per million bits. In Phase II LIT will ma ...
