Abstract : Magnetic memories (MRAM) are one of the emerging non-volatile memory technologies that have experienced rapid development over the past decade. One of the advantages of this technology lies in the varied fields of application in which it can be used. In addition to its primary function of storing information, MRAM is nowadays used in applications such as sensors, RF receivers and hardware security. In this thesis, we are interested in the use of MRAMs in the design of elementary hardware security primitives. Initially, an exploration in the design of TRNG (True Random Number Generator) based on STT-MRAM (Spin Transfert Torque MRAM) type memories was carried out with the aim of producing a demonstrator and proving its effectiveness for secure applications. Random extraction methods in STT and TAS (Thermally Assisted Switching) memories are presented. We have thus evaluated these magnetic memories within the framework of TRNGs but also for the generation of PUFs (Physically Unclonable Functions) on physical devices.
