Secret Key Generation

The PhySec Thing: About Trust and Security in Industrial IoT Systems

Abstract: 

The developments of the fourth industrial revolution with the fusion of technologies to Cyber-Physical Production System (CPPS), accompanied by the growing (wireless) interconnection of a multitude of different components (sensors, actuators, and machines, for example) opens up a multitude of risks, attack vectors and security threats. The Physical Layer Security (PhySec) approach proposed in this paper enables an efficient and resource-saving yet sound and secure safeguarding of industrial networks. The elaborated results of the Secret Key Generation (SKG) algorithms to establish Symmetric Key Cryptography (SKC) in wireless networks on the one hand and the SRAM-based Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs) to derive hardware-intrinsic cryptographic credentials, on the other hand, demonstrate the appropriateness of the PhySec principle.
