The art of cryptography: Heads and tails - Cryptographic random generation
(4+2 SWS. )

Prof. Dr. Joachim von zur Gathen
Dr. Daniel Loebenberger
Tutorial: Dr. Daniel Loebenberger
Randomness has become an important tool in the design of efficient algorithms. But what is a random bit? 0? 1? The necessary quality of randomness depends on the application: In cryptography such bits have to satisfy more requirements than when they are used for Monte-Carlo simulations in particle physics (from where their computational use originated). Cryptographic protocols require random ...
