GPU random numbers via the tiny encryption algorithm
Random numbers are extensively used on the GPU. As more computation is ported to the GPU, it can no longer be treated as rendering hardware alone. Random number generators (RNG) a...

The cutoff phenomenon for randomized riffle shuffles
We study the cutoff phenomenon for generalized riffle shuffles where, at each step, the deck of cards is cut into a random number of packs of multinomial sizes which are then riffl...

How to Encrypt with a Malicious Random Number Generator
Chosen-plaintext attacks on private-key encryption schemes are currently modeled by giving an adversary access to an oracle that encrypts a given message m using random coins that ...

A plug-in-based architecture for random number generation in simulation systems
Simulations often depend heavily on random numbers, yet the impact of random number generators is recognized seldom. The generation of random numbers for simulations is not trivia...

Practical Random Number Generation in Software
There is a large gap between the theory and practice for random number generation. For example, on most operating systems, using /dev/random to generate a 256-bit AES key is highl...
