comment Is Pseudo-Random Generator (PRG) in OpenSSL uniformly distributed?
"Cryptographically Secure, which means it passes statistical tests". To be clear (and I don't mean to imply Security Aficionado is unaware of this issue), Cryptographic security requires much more than that. Standard statistical tests are quick and dirty, and look for very generic types of "non-randomness"; cryptographic security requires outputs to be indistinguishable from random even against computationally intensive tests that are targeted specifically at the algorithm in question.
