CRYPTOGRAPHIC RANDOM NUMBERS

 

WORKSHOP HASH & STREAM
On February 1 and 2, 2007, the workshop '' Hash & Stream" on the state of the art in cryptanalysis of hash functions and stream ciphers was held at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Salzburg (see programme). The workshop was organized by Peter Hellekalek.
 
Below, we offer the slides of the talks:

 

ALGORITHMS

 

RANDOM NUMBER GENERATORS
Cryptographic random number generators will have to be unpredictable, in addition to many other randomness properties that are required. This rules out most RNGs that are used in stochastic simulation.

 

TESTS

  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a battery of statistical tests to detect "non-randomness" in binary sequences. The so-called NIST-battery of tests has become a de-facto standard for cryptographic generators, see their webpage on Random Number Generation and Testing.
  • As we have indicated on our Tests page, any new standard will have to consider the TESTU01 library of L'Ecuyer and Simard (Montreal University) as a basis.
