Random Number Generation Is Getting Harder—It’s Time to Pay Attention

Posted on in Presentations

Without entropy, crypto is just math. Do you really know where your random numbers come from and how good they are? True randomness is hard to generate and even harder to test. This session will compare different approaches, argue why virtualization and the IoT make things worse and explain how new standards can benchmark entropy sources from lava lamps to quantum mechanics.
