Breaking mobile device crypto with chaos theory and hardware RNG’s

This is a continuation of the previous post with details on breaking the cryptosystem in the paper “Design and FPGA Implementation of a Pseudo-Random Bit Sequence Generator Using Spatiotemporal Chaos,” which proposed a hardware-based PRNG using a chaotic function as the basis of a cryptosystem inspired by the one-time pad. It proposed the system as […]

I saw an article the other day critical of the ACM (here also see this linked to in comments) and I have to say, I completely agree. As far as I can tell, the ACM, like the IEEE and other publishing houses, exists to leech off of the academic world, charging large amounts of money […]
