If you rather trust a hardware random number generator you can build and audit yourself, rather than buying some trusted (according to the vendor) platform module, this series may be for you. In this episode I explain how the Zener/avalanche diode based noise generator I use works.
Here are my personal highlights from last week’s RIPE-68 in Warsaw/Poland, and some quick info on a secret little project of mine.
In a reply to the previous episode, Matthias pointed out that while the ramond is a useful tool, it is little if any use against a malicious attacker. Right, but if you let an attacker into a subnet with potential targets, you are in some very serious trouble anyway.
