Implementations of 2D Material-Based Devices For IoT Security

A new research paper titled "Application of 2D Materials in Hardware Security for Internet-of-Things: Progress and Perspective" was published by researchers at National University of Singapore and A*STAR. The paper explores the "implementation of hardware security using 2D materials, for example, true random number generators (TRNGs), physical unclonable functions (PUFs), camouflage, and ant... » read more

A novel technique for random number generation using CMOS image sensor

Academic paper from Thamirabharani Engineering College, India. Abstract "Random Number Generators (RNGs) have been used in several traditional fields such as simulation, gaming, cryptography, etc. Random numbers are used in cryptography to generate passwords. The strength of a password depends not just on its length and complexity but mainly on its unpredictability. Strong passwords lower t... » read more

QUAC-TRNG: High-Throughput True Random Number Generation Using Quadruple Row Activation in Commodity DRAM Chips

Abstract "True random number generators (TRNG) sample random physical processes to create large amounts of random numbers for various use cases, including security-critical cryptographic primitives, scientific simulations, machine learning applications, and even recreational entertainment. Unfortunately, not every computing system is equipped with dedicated TRNG hardware, limiting the applicat... » read more

What Makes A Chip Tamper-Proof?

The cyber world is the next major battlefield, and attackers are busily looking for ways to disrupt critical infrastructure. There is widespread proof this is happening. “Twenty-six percent of the U.S. power grid was found to be hosting Trojans," said Haydn Povey, IAR Systems' general manager of embedded security solutions. "In a cyber-warfare situation, that's the first thing that would b... » read more
