How to Predict the Output of a Hardware Random Number Generator
Abstract: A hardware random number generator was described at CHES 2002 by T. Tkacik.
In this paper, we analyze its method of generating randomness and,
as a consequence of the analysis, we describe how, in principle, an attack on the generator can be executed.
