Advanced ID Tags for Authentication of Integrated Circuits and Systems Using 3D Quantum Imaging Concepts (Internal Project 2013)

Project Description:
Counterfeiting of electronic components in the US supply chain is a significant problem threatening the US commerce, industry, military, healthcare, and consumers. In this proposal, we focus on design of unique ID tags that can effectively and efficiently identify counterfeits and verify authentic ICs. The objective of this project is to design and experiment with secure tagging and signatures by using a variety of advanced optical and photonics encoding and imaging techniques for authentication, verification, and security, including quantum imaging approaches.

Project Duration:
Oct. 1, 2013 -Oct. 1, 2015

Deliverables:
Year 1 (Due 1 October 2014): Investigation of ID tag design using quantum imaging. Performance evaluation of ID tags for security and verification.

Year 2 (Due 1 October 2015):Optical experiments. Mathematical processing of ID tags for authentication and verification. Performance metrics, etc. A prototype implementation will be completed. We will also deliver a final report on the methods and the results obtained from our implementations.
