Memristor circuits are tuned for security

The analogue tuning properties of memristors can be used to create physically unclonable functions, a type of hardware security primitive that draws its cryptographic keys from physical variations created during device fabrication. The schematic illustration on the cover highlights the experimental implementation of these ‘digital fingerprints’, which rely on vertically integrated metal-oxide memristive crossbar circuits.
