About this Textbook

This book discusses the design principles of physically unclonable functions (PUFs) and how these can be employed in hardware-based security applications, in particular, the book provides readers with a comprehensive overview of security threats and existing countermeasures.

This book has many features that make it a unique source for students, engineers and educators, including more than 80 problems and worked exercises, in addition to, approximately 200 references, which give extensive direction for further reading.

 

About the authors

Dr. Basel Halak is the director of the Embedded Systems Master program at Southampton University. He is a member of the Sustainable Electronics Research group, as well as, Cyber Security group at Electronics and Computer Science School (ECS). He has written over 60 conference and journal papers, and authored two books. He has received his PhD degree in Microelectronics System Design from Newcastle University. He was then awarded a knowledge transfer fellowship to develop secure and energy efficient design for portable health care monitoring systems. His background is on the design and implementation of microelectronics systems, with special focus on developing secure hardware implementation for cryptographic primitives such as physically unclonable functions.  Dr Halak lectures on digital design, Secure Hardware and Cryptography, supervises a number of MSc and PhD students, and is also leading the European Masters in Embedded Computing Systems (EMECS). He is the recipient of the Vice Chancellor Teaching Award in 2016, and the bronze leaf award in IEEE PRIME conference for his paper on current-based physically unclonable functions. He is a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), a guest editor of the IET CDT, and serves on several technical program committees such as IEEE ICCCA, ICCCS, MTV, IVSW, MicDAT and EWME. He is also member of hardware security working group of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
