The problem of an efficient hardware implementation of multiplications with one or more constants is encountered in many different digital signal-processing areas, such as image processing or digital filter optimization. In a more general form, this is a problem of common subexpression elimination, and as such it also occurs in compiler optimization and(More)
In this paper, we analyze ring oscillator (RO) based physical unclonable function (PUF) on FPGAs. We show that the systematic process variation adversely affects the ability of the RO-PUF to generate unique chip-signatures, and propose a compensation method to mitigate it. Moreover, a configurable ring oscillator (CRO) technique is proposed to reduce noise(More)
In this work, we propose a systematic method to evaluate and compare the performance of Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs). The need for such a method is justified by the fact that various types of PUFs have been proposed so far. However, there is no common method that can fairly compare them in terms of their performances. We first propose three generic(More)
A silicon Physical Unclonable Function (PUF), which is a die-unique challenge-response function, is an emerging hardware primitive for secure applications. It exploits manufacturing process variations in a die to generate unique signatures out of a chip. This enables chip authentication and cryptographic key generation. A Ring Oscillator (RO) based PUF is a(More)
To validate the effectiveness of a Physical Unclonable Function (PUF), it needs to be characterized over a large population of chips. Though simulation methods can provide approximate results, an on-chip experiment produces more accurate result. In this paper, we characterize a PUF based on ring oscillator (RO) using a significantly large population of 125(More)
This contribution describes the design and performance testing of an Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) compliant encryption chip that delivers 2.29 GB/s of encryption throughput at 56 mW of power consumption in a 0.18m CMOS standard cell technology. This integrated circuit implements the Rijndael encryption algorithm, at any combination of block lengths(More)
Dynamically reconfigurable embedded systems (DRESs) target an architecture consisting of generalpurpose processors and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), in which FPGAs can be reconfigured in run-time to achieve cost saving. In this paper, we describe a hardware-software partitioning and scheduling approach for DRESs. Previous work only took(More)
