The PseudoRandom Number Generator (PRNG) used by the Windows operating system is the most commonly used PRNG. The pseudorandomness of the output of this generator is crucial for the security of almost any application running in Windows. Nevertheless, its exact algorithm was never published. We examined the binary code of a distribution of Windows 2000. This investigation was done without any help from Microsoft. We reconstructed the algorithm used by the pseudorandom number generator (namely… Expand
