In the era of IoT (Internet of Things), more devices now frequently carry confidential data. At the same time, the risk of invasive attacks also increases. Hence, the security against these attacks has become more critical. In this paper, we propose eFuse-based authentication logic. This logic generates a unique value of each IC using eFuse trimming information. In the authentication process, the unique value is used to distinguish authentic ICs from copied ones. Since the eFuse trimming information resides in ICs, the proposed method can be implemented with lightweight architectures. Experimental results in 0.13-um technology show that the proposed method can reliably authenticate ICs in various operating conditions.
