Abstract

As embedded systems are becoming ubiquitous, the need for low-power circuits is increasing. An approach to reducing the complexity and power consumption of chips is to reuse components that are already present on the chip in alternative ways. Our design reuses the Physically Unclonable Function, mostly used for authentication, as a True Random Number Generator. With this approach, more secure authentication protocols that use randomness can be devised without adding too much complexity to the design.
