I'm thinking about buying an USB TRNG. The question is: How do I evaluate it's randomness ? I'm sure some are better than others but which is which ? Are thermal-noise better than radio-noise TRNGs?
A lot of sites like this one Here, refer to 10-side dice to generate random number for otp. I was thinking about new ways to generate random numbers,letters and passwords. here what I got. to ...
Has anyone checked if using haveged, a Linux daemon which uses the HAVEGE algorithm, changes the non-deterministic properties of the random data from ...
Is it good to use a mouse movement as a 64-bit random seed for a Pseudorandom Generator like AES in Counter Mode? Should I only need to get the X and Y coordinates of the mouse movement?
Imagine that we're trying to create a function to generate a random string conforming to a user-supplied alphabet. That way, users can generate random strings with given characters. Something like: ...
If a pseudo-random sequence generator is built so that it uses an n-bit seed and outputs a string that is of length x. Let's say one wants to generate a bit string of length y and uses the previous ...
Is there a way to generate a random number with given restrictions: It will be used in a decentralised network with a big number of peers (no central authority to generate it) Its generation should ...
I'm using a random number generator that requires me to pass it a big (several kilobytes) pool of random data for initialization. I've gathered entropy from various system metrics (free memory, ...
How would you generate a list of distinct random strings, where all strings are alphanumeric and have a fixed length?
RSA, DES, AES, etc. all use (relatively) complicated mathematics to encrypt some message with some key. For each of these methods, there have been several documented vulnerabilities found over the ...
