A novel technique for random number generation using CMOS image sensor

Academic paper from Thamirabharani Engineering College, India. Abstract "Random Number Generators (RNGs) have been used in several traditional fields such as simulation, gaming, cryptography, etc. Random numbers are used in cryptography to generate passwords. The strength of a password depends not just on its length and complexity but mainly on its unpredictability. Strong passwords lower t... » read more
