“The challenges of user security will increase as more devices get hooked up to the Internet of Things (IoT). At this week’s International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco, Rice University researchers unveiled chip technology that purportedly is far more reliable than current methods of producing unclonable digital fingerprints for IoT devices.

The technology developed by the researchers, Kaiyuan Yang and Dai Li, is called “physically unclonable function” (PUF). While previous attempts at PUF have been attempted, Yang and Li’s method is…”
