Three Letters Re: COMSEC: One Time Pad Generation


Sir: I agree with the response posted, and your reply. While older versions of Perl used relatively poor pseudo-random number seeds, the original author's use of a time (at runtime) index as a pseudo random number (PRN) generator seed is a reasonably "secure" method of generating a series of...


Sir:

I agree with the response posted, and your reply. While older versions of Perl used relatively poor pseudo-random number seeds, the original author's use of a time (at runtime) index as a pseudo random number (PRN) generator seed is a reasonably "secure" method of generating a series of PRNs. That was the first thing I looked for in his code, and such a method would be secure given the caveats you suggest. (That is, it won't be up against true high-power cryptanalysis). If applied...

Hey Jim:

I am a little concerned about yesterday evening's post by B.R. regarding the generation of one-time pads. It claims to generate a "pad" using a random selection of dictionary words. A properly generated one-time pad requires a truly random selection of letters; it is only as strong as the source of entropy. Using a dictionary of English language words, acronyms, etc. does not seem to be very wise. Additionally, while I am not terribly familiar with Perl, I know that a lot of languages have built-in "random" functions that are not as random as one might hope for;...
