Random Number Generators

This is a presentation briefing about Random Number Generators.

Random Number Generators are important in the data center because of their role in cryptography.  This presentation outlines the importance of Random Number Generators, two primary types of Random Number Generators (TRNG and PRNG), and a visual example of degrees of “randomness.”




What is Cryptography

Cryptography is the science of encrypting information.  In this deck, we introduce what cryptography is, the early history and evolution of cryptography, and introduce important questions about key management and cryptographic functions.  Finally, we cover the reasons why cryptography is an important data center topic.
