Authenticity Based on Physically Unclonable Function in IPv6 Platform

Computer networks were primarily used by the University researchers for sending emails and by corporate employee for sharing printers. Under these conditions, security did not get a lot of attention. But now, as millions of ordinary citizens are using networks for financial transaction, social networking so there is huge potential threats around network security. Modern cryptographic protocols are based on the premise that only authorized participants can obtain secrets keys and access to information systems. However, various kinds of tampering methods have been devised to extract secret information from smartcards and ATMs. From storage of digital secret key in a chip we came to an idea to use physical property of nonhomogeneous material that make it unique. This property make a secret key unclonable and due to this, the structure created from this material are called physical unclonable function. Moreover our current IP Addressing in IPV4 somewhat addresses security issues however due to limited IP address, it always acting as a hindrance to accommodate most of the users in the earth. So, for the sufficient IP address resources and providing better quality of service with secure services, the technology in networking field should be migrated to IPv6.
