Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) are innovative hardware security primitives that extract secret information from physical characteristics of a device, a chip, or integrated circuits; where different instances of the same PUF device will produce different secret keys. PUFs are used a lot in authentification and secret key generation depending on their type, strong or weak. PUFs require fundamental properties such as unclonability and evaluability, and the performance of a PUF is measured by a specific metrics like uniqueness, and randomness. This paper surveys the fundamental concepts and the ongoing research behind PUF, including the main properties of PUF, their application’s domain, and classes. Further, we develop a tool that gauge the performance and the strength of a PUF. The effectiveness of the developed approach has been experimented on two datasets and shown a prominent results.
