Variability: For headache and profit
January/February 2010 (vol. 27 no. 1)
pp. 96-98
Miodrag Potkonjak, University of California, Los Angeles

These are the best, and the worst, of times for hardware security. Numerous factors—such as limited controllability and observability—facilitate an essentially unlimited potential for attacks. The revolutionary concept of physical unclonable functions (PUFs), developed in 2002, has emerged as an important means for resolving security problems.

Index Terms:
hardware security, cryptographic protocol, physical unclonable functions, PUFs
