As a consequence of the rapid development of the Internet of Things (IoT), where devices are massively interconnected, security breaches are discovered daily. The growing threat of physical attacks, on which connected objects are widely exposed, forces chipmakers to increase the security of their products. True Random Number Generators are the cornerstone of device security; they are required for running cryptographic algorithms and fully integrated into encryption engines. The security level of the system directly depends on the randomness of the bits generated. Furthermore, IoT chips are facing harsh constraints in terms of price and power consumption. In order to be integrated into these chips, TRNG must offer an efficient tradeoff between cost and security. In this perspective, TRNGs based on already integrated components, such as RRAM memories, is a promising lead.
