Randomly Driven Fuzzy Key Extraction of Unclonable Images

Abstract: In this paper, we develop an adjustable Fuzzy Extractor using the Physical Unclonable Functions (PUF) obtained by a common laser engraving method to sign physical objects. In particular, a string (or helper data) is generated by XORing a binary reduction of the PUF observation with the encoding of a randomly generated key, or identifier.
