Description : Estimating the quality of a source of entropy
Cryptographic random bit generators (RBGs), also known as random
number generators (RNGs), require a noise source that produces
digital outputs with some level of unpredictability, expressed as
min-entropy. SP 800-90B provides a standardized means of estimating
the quality of a source of entropy.
This is a set of tools for NIST's SP 800-90B Recommendation for the
Entropy Sources Used for Random Bit Generation.
Debian has packages for RNG: ent and dieharder. This package is
specifically useful for evaluating/building TRNG.
Good source of entropy is important for computing, especially for free
computing. I started PLL-based true random generator project, named
For Gomti, I'm using ea_iid, ea_non_iid, and ea_restart in this
package to evaluate the output of TRNG.
It requires following packages:
libbz2-dev libdivsufsort-dev libjsoncpp-dev libssl-dev libmpfr-dev
I plan to maintain the package at salsa.debian.org. I'm open to team
maintenance (or co-maintainers), but I don't know appropriate one.
Suggestions are welcome.
