Creating Unpredictability: Random Number Generator Use Cases

“Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin. For, as has been pointed out several times, there is no such thing as a random number — there are only methods to produce random numbers.” – John Von Neumann Random number generators (RNGs) are a crucial part of many […]

Provable Randomness: How To Test RNGs

And The Future of RNG Analysis

How do you know if something is really random? When testing Random Number Generators (RNGs) for randomness you quickly run into the “is that really random” dilemma. As pattern seeking creatures, we naturally look for patterns on an ongoing basis. Like many things, randomness varies. Most of the time, pseudo-random numbers generators (PRNGs) are basically […]
