Unpredictability is usually perceived with a sense of uneasiness and discomfort. However, when it comes to secure our data, information, posts, pictures and whatever flows to (or from) the internet about us, protection relies on unpredictability. The impossibility for an eavesdropper or a hacker to break the walls protecting what sits on the net about us depends on secret keys, protocols, cyphering algorithms namely the art & science of cryptography. Keys, essential to lock&unlock the doors, must be randomly generated. And true randomness implies unpredictability.
Random Power developed a True Random Bit Generator for key generation and beyond and aims at providing a secure, cost-effective, robust and tiny device for the IoT, automotive and mobile markets.
While testing out performances of our TRNG with respect to different PRGN, RandomPower team found and helped to resolve, a bug for a GPU based PRNG in Java: https://www.npmjs.com/package/gpu.js/v/2.2.0. We want to thanks to gpu.js team for the acknowledgement!
APRIL 10th Update: Unfortunately the hackathon has to be postponed. We tried hard but the lock-down of the University departments prevented us from properly setting up the servers required to hold it as real-time event in the cyberspace. Moreover, because of the COVID-19 outbreak the delivery of the majority of the random generator boards was delayed. We will be back, more enthusiastically than ever. Stay tuned!
