This paper introduces a method of generating true random numbers using only digital logic. It shows that asynchronous sampling the output of ring oscillators can be used as a source of random numbers in digital hardware and that Linear Hybrid Cellular Automata can be used as scramblers to substantially improve the quality of the random data. A highly… (More)
