True Random Numbers on CD

If you need true random numbers only sporadically and the purchase of one of our Hardware True Random Number Generators is not adequate, an alternative is offered here: True Random Numbers on CD.


Fields of application for the ZRANDOM:


Is there a need for True Random Numbers - produced by a Hardware Generator? 

Two CD versions are available.


Version 1:  Completely physically generated random bits

CD contains:

No use of pseudo random numbers at all.
* Binary random bit files have maximum entropy and cannot be compressed.

Price:   5,- Euro per 1E8 (=100.000.000) random bits

Order name:   Z-CD-Phys
Please declare the number of binary files per CD (minimum = 10, maximum = 35)

Payment by PayPal (for 10 files):

Delivery within Germany (incl. shipping and VAT):  52 Euro

Delivery within the EU (incl. shipping and VAT):  55 Euro

Delivery outside of the EU (incl. shipping and VAT):  59 Euro


Version 2:  Semi-physically generated random bits (XOR mode)

CD contains:

* Binary random bit files have maximum entropy and cannot be compressed.

3.500.000.000 random bits per CD

Order name:   Z-CD-XOR

Payment by PayPal:

Delivery within Germany (incl. shipping and VAT):  52 Euro

Delivery within the EU (incl. shipping and VAT):  55 Euro

Delivery outside of the EU (incl. shipping and VAT):  59 Euro


Hints concerning the CDs:


Security

In both modes absolutely non-deterministic, i.e. unpredictable random bit sequences are generated. During generation the most important statistical properties of the random bits are checked (by the FIPS PUB140-1 statistical tests). No bits which did not pass the tests are recorded. Here you will find a (short) example protocol file.


The conversion program is executable under Windows 95/98/NT/2000/XP. The number of random bits per decimal number can be varied from 1 to 32. Decimal random numbers (Integer or Real) are recorded in an ASCII file.

Konvertierung unter NT


Binary random bit files created by our hardware generators pass the DIEHARD - TEST developed by George Marsaglia without any problems. DIEHARD contains 15 statistical random bit tests and can be regarded as an "acid test" for every random number generator. A lot of generators, like RAN2 from Numerical Recipes, don't pass this test.
