Quantum random number generators (QRNGs) can significantly improve the security of cryptographic protocols by ensuring that generated keys cannot be predicted. However, the cost, size, and power requirements of current Quantum random number generators have prevented them from becoming widespread. In the meantime, the quality of the cameras integrated in mobile telephones has improved significantly so that now they are sensitive to light at the few-photon level. We demonstrate how these can be…

Enhanced security for multi-detector Quantum Random Number Generators
TLDR
This work presents an efficient method that allow to estimate the quantum min-entropy for a multi-detector QRNG, and considers a scenario in which an attacker can control the efficiency of the detectors and knows the emitted number of photons.
Quantum random number generation
TLDR
Self-testing quantum random number generators (QRNGs) are studied, in which verifiable randomness can be generated without trusting the actual implementation, and an intermediate category is self-testing QRNG, which provides a tradeoff between the trustworthiness on the device and the random number generation speed.
