This session will describe the architecture of the NIST Randomness Beacon. This is to be an online source of public randomness. Every 60 seconds, a randomly generated 512-bit string will be posted. The posting will be time-stamped and signed by NIST. The design also includes other security and integrity mechanisms. The talk will explain why we think this is a valuable resource in the online world.
