The development of a secure physical RNG is a two-fold challenge. First of all, an appropriate design has to be implemented carefully. Secondly, evidence shall be given that the design itself and in particular the concrete implementation are indeed secure, and this task may be even more challenging. We briefly address general aspects that reliable security evaluations of physical RNGs should take into account. We discuss a performant RNG design that is based on pairs of noisy diodes. We… CONTINUE READING
