Title - Random Number Generation - Lava Lamps, Clouds, New Standards and
The SANS Institute recently listed "Weak random number generators" as one
of the 7 most dangerous security techniques to watch in 2017. But how do
you really know how good your random numbers are? Virtualization and IoT
make things worse and new standards are a wake-up call. Random numbers are
the basis of security for all cryptography, yet they are often taken for
granted. Without entropy, crypto is just math.
Learn why random numbers are so hard to generate and validate, compare
different technologies in use today across virtualized environments, and
discuss operational steps to take the risk out of random numbers and help
secure cryptosystems even into the era of quantum computers.
BIO - Richard Moulds, General Manager of Whitewood Security, has spoken at
RSA 2017 and at several OWASP chapter events in New York, Chicago and
Austin. Richard has over 20 years of experience in the area of cryptography
