Research Institution
The goal of this research is to develop Unclonable Functions that will generate reliable cryptographic keys based on system characteristics. In the event of a reverse engineering attack, the encrypted configuration files, programs, and data will not be deciphered because the attack modifies the cryptographic keys. LIT"s goal is to develop Unclonable Functions that may be used in FPGAs or ASICs to allow protection for all types of silicon devices. These Unclonable Functions are sensitive to specific reverse engineering attacks including package modification and silicon modification.
