General Dynamics C4 Systems
In this project, we investigate authentication systems that utilize fuzzy extractors and Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs) to uniquely identify hardware components. More specifically, we seek to verify authenticity using PUFs based on Static Random Access Memory (SRAM). We propose an implementation of a fuzzy extractor in software which allows for the extraction of uniquely identifying information from this type of PUF. Included is a working prototype and framework for this authentication system to facilitate future research on this topic.
