Bachelor-/Masterarbeit: Documenting existing functions and protocols related to PUFs and implementing new ones

Beitrag von athanagn »

The Security Engineering Group (http://www.seceng.de) is looking for a Bachelor or Master student to work towards implementing and documenting a series of different functions and protocols related to Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs).

Subject of the thesis

Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) provide a unique output (response) for a specific input (challenge), based on hardware characteristics which are unique per device. We have implemented a series of functions that take one or more given PUF responses (simple bitstrings of 0's and 1's) as their input and then calculate such metrics as its hamming weight, entropy and others. Additionally, we have also built related protocols which, for example, can be used for secure key storage and recreation, based on a fuzzy extractor scheme and an error correction algorithm. We would therefore like you to: The documentation required may consist of both simple comments on the code and of a few pages providing a summary of the code and its functions and commands.

Finally, we would also like you to:
  • create a simple interface, where a user may select which function/protocol/operation to perform on one or more PUF responses which have been provided as input. Of course, such an interface, must be expecting as arguments one or more such PUF responses, which can, for example, be provided through a file or series of files.
Your profile

You need to:
→ have good programming skills in C and C++, as most of our code has been implemented in these languages. Additional skills in Java are welcome.
→ speak English quite well.
→ be able to convert mathematical formulas, such as those related to error correction, into code. Such a task would involve you implementing the relevant code almost from scratch, as there appear to be no related libraries existing.
→ have a basic understanding of such terms as entropy, hamming distance, etc.
→ be creative and willing to work towards your goal.

Additional experience with writing reports and presenting results is also welcome.
