Current Research

Currently I am investigating the properties of Optical Physical Uncloneable Functions (OPUFs) produced by Young-Quantum Group to determine their viability and parameters in practical use. This involves seeing how various measuring and environmental parameters affect uniqueness and robustness of the signatures obtained from the OPUFs and algorithms optimal to extract such identifiers.

As the goal for these OPUFs is robust authentication even when the signature is taken using a hand-held smartphone, my research also involves designing a pattern which will be used to quickly and precisely detect the OPUF and carry some metadata.
