Simple Pseudorandom Number Generator with Strengthened Double Encryption (Cilia)

Henry Ng

Abstract: A new cryptographic pseudorandom number generator Cilia is presented. It hashes real random data using an iterative hash function to update its secret state, and it generates pseudorandom numbers using a block cipher. Cilia is a simple algorithm that uses an improved variant of double encryption with additional security to generate pseudorandom numbers, and its performance is similar to double encryption. Futhermore, cryptanalytic attacks are presented.
