Random Number Generation

Random Number Generation

Quantis is a family of hardware random number generators (RNG) which exploit elementary quantum optical processes as a source of true randomness (cf. Wikipedia: physical phenomena with quantum random properties). Photons (light particles) are sent, one by one, onto a semi-transparent mirror and detected. The exclusive events (reflection or transmission) are associated to “0” or “1” bit values. Such quantum processes provide instantaneous and inexhaustible entropy.
