The Internet of Things (IoT) has become ubiquitous in our daily life as billions of devices are connected through the Internet infrastructure. However, the rapid increase of IoT devices brings many non-traditional challenges for system design and implementation. In this paper, we focus on the hardware security vulnerabilities and ultra-low power design requirement of IoT devices. We briefly survey the existing design methods to address these issues. Then we propose an approximate computing based information hiding approach that provides security with low power. We demonstrate that this security primitive can be applied for security applications such as digital watermarking, fingerprinting, device authentication, and lightweight encryption.
