A constructive theory of randomness for functions, based on computational complexity, is developed, and a pseudorandom function generator is presented. This generator is a deterministic polynomial-time algorithm that transforms pairs (<italic>g</italic>, <italic>r</italic>), where <italic>g</italic> is <italic>any</italic> one-way function and <italic>r</italic> is a random <italic>k</italic>-bit string, to polynomial-time computable functions ƒ<italic><subscrpt>r</subscrpt></italic>: {1, … , 2… CONTINUE READING
