Safe randomness: theory and practice accepted

Abstract

True randomness is hard to find. The unsafe practice of randomness in computer systems may result in unexpected consequences, such as predictable game sequences and weak passwords.

In this session, the speaker first explains the inherent vulnerabilities in computer systems due to the scarcity of physical randomness. The speaker then describes how to obtain sufficient randomness by adding and building hardware random number generators at an affordable price, and how to use the generators in the production system hardware and software.

The speaker has published his physical random generator works at the following repositories:
