WG2: Trustworthy manufacturing of secure devices

WG Leaders

  • Lilian Bossuet, U. Jean Monnet St.-Etienne, lilian.bossuet[at]univ-st-etienne.fr
  • Paris Kitsos, Hellenic Open U., pkitsos[at]eap.gr

This WG is focused on the following issues:

1. PUFs for precise identification of secure devices
Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs) are hardware components with the properties of inherent uniqueness, unclonability and tamper evidence which enable a number of interesting applications. A physical token embedding a PUF can use the PUF’s responses as a unique identifier. Since the response behavior is in practice physically unclonable, even for the manufacturer of the tokens, they are effectively unforgeable. This makes PUFs a very useful tool for precise identification of secure devices, for creating custom and powerful authentication mechanisms, and for anti‐counterfeiting technologies. This activity of the COST Action will focus on the study and the implementation costs of the wide variety of known PUFs, and possibly to invent new architectures.

2. Hardware Trojan detection
In order to reduce manufacturing costs, the fabrication of integrated circuits is nowadays migrating offshore, making circuits vulnerable to security compromise, functional changes, information leaks or even catastrophic system failures under specific conditions. The threat brought by Hardware Trojans, which was under-estimated for long time, begins to materialize. On the other hand, Hardware Trojans can even be an effective vehicle for destabilization of states (for terrorist or criminal organizations) and businesses (by mafias or fraudulent competitors). For this reason, Hardware Trojan detection mechanisms are becoming more important in ensuring a trustworthy hardware environment.
