This paper investigates the use of system memory featuresas the characteristics of simpler embedded devices. TheICmetrics technology is based on the hardware andsoftware features of the systems in order to generate theunique identifiers. Usually memory features are consideredvery volatile as they are considered very unstable usually.But, in this case the memory features are very crucial asthey tell us more about the system function. Hence, thesefeatures were used for analysis and a multivariate gaussianmodel was created and validated by comparing testingsample against the training data with 98% accuracyamongst 6 devices. This confirms the usefulness of thesystem memory features in adding a layer of security to thedevices.
