Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a novel field programmable gate array (FPGA) based physical unclonable function (PUF) with higher entropy than current implementations, the feasibility of creating PUF based RNGs, and PUF based authentication algorithms. These PUFs will be used to ensure intellectual property (IP) is protected, to prevent tampering with FPGA designs, and to prevent unauthorized access to information. To this end, Leanics Corporation will leverage its extensive experience in FPGA design, circuit design, security protocol design, and error correction code design to develop best in class PUF circuits for FPGAs. Results of this project will have broader impacts in other commercial market sectors such as cellular phone systems, secure communications, smart cards, medical devices, and smart grid devices for electrical power distribution and regulation.
