Random Number Generators Founded on Signal and Information Theory

  title={Random Number Generators Founded on Signal and Information Theory},
  author={David Paul Maher and Robert J. Rance},
The strength of a cryptographic function depends on the amount of entropy in the cryptovariables that are used as keys. Using a large key length with a strong algorithm is false comfort if the amount of entropy in the key is small. Unfortunately the amount of entropy driving a cryptographic function is usually overestimated, as entropy is confused with much weaker correlation properties and the entropy source is difficult to analyze. Reliable, high speed, and low cost generation of non… CONTINUE READING
