The authors present a new nanotechnology PPUF-based architecture for trusted remote sensing. Current public physical unclonable function designs encompass complex circuits requiring high measurement accuracy and whose size slows down the authentication process. Their novel nanotechnology-based architecture ensures fast authentication through partial simulation while maintaining robust security. They authenticate over partitions in the design space in order to alleviate the authentication burden while still ensuring attack by simulation is entirely ineffective. They contribute new nanotechnology-based security protocols for authentication and time-stamping for trusted remote sensing.
