Security should be paid for otherwise
negligence becomes too exorbitant!

Substantiation and Implementation of Minimalist Authentication
Protocols of Microelectronic Devices

Despite all the efforts of the international community aimed at solving the key problems of security provisioning, the attempts to implement an efficient, cost-effective and energy efficient built-in protection of system elements from cloning and counterfeiting, first of all, such radio-frequency tags (RFID tag) as EPC and Mifare, have been unsuccessful. The solution to this problem is still a long way in the future, which is directly confirmed by the results obtained in the framework of large-scale and well-funded European projects ECRYPT I/II, BRIDGE (about 4.3 million euros per year) and StoP.
All of these places the burden of counteraction on the level of logical processing, on high-cost and unreliable, especially under conditions of violation of the supply-chain integrity, logistics protocols.

Meanwhile, the use of reliable encryption based on the highly efficient and low-hardware-cost stochastic technology, in contrast to the solutions obtained in the framework of the mentioned projects, does not lead to an increase the cost and power consumption and a decrease in the operation range of low-cost RFID tag, but makes it possible (for example, at a minimum cost in the range of 150-200 logic elements and cryptographic strength of the order of формула) to apply these results to very critical organic and super-critical printed (organic) radio-frequency (RF, RFID) tags.
So effective a solution to these problems is achieved by the know-how, introduced in the project, and by unilateral and mutual minimalist authentication protocols of microelectronic devices, constructed on the basis of the Stochastic Technology (Random Method, Stochastic Method) and Stochastic Cryptography (Minimalistic Cryptography, Light-Weight Cryptography).

The aim of the project. The proof (on the present technological base) of the possible realisation of an efficacious, highly profitable (without increasing the cost of production) and energy-saving (without reducing the range) built-in electronic protection against cloning, imitation (emulation) and counterfeit of cheap microelectronics devices – RF-tags (RFID tag), smart cards (chips) and microsensors (silicon and organic) – under conditions of extreme resource scarcity.
Detailed data on the Project are given in the Appendix.

The solution to this key problem that could lead to a far-reaching innovative breakthrough in the field of Microsensor (RFID) and Security Technologies is based on the Pre-Arithmetic-based discoveries in algebra, on the development of Stochastic Systems and Technologies, which differ by an overwhelming technical superiority over all other approaches known today in the world.
In particular, the implementation of the above-mentioned Project will make it possible to create high quality and super-power Generators of Random Numbers (Random Number Generator, RNG, PRNG, TRNG), includ-ing those built-in into microprocessors and coprocessors of computers (e.g., into Intel processors, Security Driver, at a significantly lower hardware cost and performance that is tens and even hundreds of times higher, as evidenced by the results of the Research), intended for the use in most cryptographic applications.
