Abstract
LIT proposes development of PUF Technology with improved entropy, variation, and noise characteristics. This technology holds promise for verifying the configuration of secure systems and verifying that the configuration has not been tampered with. This concept provides a new capability for verifying and authenticating hardware. In order to be effective for all AT applications, PUF responses must exhibit a unique result for each unit tested, exhibit a consistent result each time the same unit is tested, and provide as many effective bits of accuracy as possible.
