Abstract

Manufacturing variability/fluctuations is a major concern in integrated circuits and this has been exploited to design a hardware security primitive or digital fingerprint generator, referred as physical unclonable function (PUF) for resource constrained low power applications. Simulation results show that the energy consumption of proposed design is 30fJ/bit which is 6.33X lesser than earlier reported designs and it has 0.0025$\mu$$m^2$ area/bit.
