[PhD Offer] Photonic augmented security via physical unclonable functions

The École Centrale de Lyon, the Lyon Institute of Technology (INL) and the CNRS are offering this thesis entitled "Photonic augmented security via physical unclonable functions".

The goal of this PhD thesis is the development of novel security primitives based on photonic physical unclonable functions (PUFs) for hardware integrity and information security applications.

The novel approach will leverage CMOS-compatible platforms for large volume mass production and integrated photonics for enhanced strength against various types of attacks e.g., machine learning modelling, reverse engineering…

The thesis is funded by the ANR project PHASEPUF (CNRS-led project) and will be carried out at the Lyon Institute of Nanotechnologies on the Ecully campus.
