Title:
GENERATION OF RANDOM BITS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/043855
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method and a device for generating random bits using an electronic circuit. The random signal is fed to at least two counter units in parallel within the electronic circuit. With the method described it is possible to detect random events in a time period. The amount of entropy that can be extracted from a signal at a point in a random number generator can be increased using the method described.
