Authenticated communication from Quantum Readout of PUFs
B. Skoric and P.W.H. Pinkse and A.P. Mosk
Abstract: Quantum Readout of Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) is a recently introduced method for remote authentication of objects.
We present an extension of the protocol to enable the authentication of data: a verifier can check if received classical data was sent by the PUF holder. We call this modification QR-d or, in the case of the optical-PUF implementation, QSA-d.
We discuss how QSA-d can be operated in a parallel way. We also present a protocol for authenticating quantum states.
