Verayo, Inc.

Verayo provides authentication and security products based on its patented Silicon DNA technology. Verayo is focused on applications of Silicon DNA technology in mobile and connected devices to address the need for higher trust and security in the fast growing mobile and NFC commerce. Verayo’s Silicon DNA technology is based on a breakthrough technology called Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs). PUFs bring three fundamental capabilities to semiconductor ICs: PUFs make ICs effectively unclonable, PUFs make it possible to securely authenticate any IC, and PUFs can generate virtually unlimited number of unique cryptographic root master keys from each IC.

This company is a spinout of the 2004 project, Authenticating and Protecting Digital Information in Portable Devices.
