Improvement and analysis of a pseudo random bit generator by means of cellular automata
Rosu Barbus, Haret-Codratian
"In this paper, we implement a revised pseudo random bit generator based on a rule-90 cellular automaton. For this purpose, we introduce a sequence matrix HN with the aim of calculating the pseudo random sequences of N bits employing the algorithm related to the automaton backward evolution. In addition, a multifractal structure of the matrix HN is revealed and quantiﬁed according to the multifractal formalism. The latter analysis could help to disentangle what kind of automaton rule is used in the randomization process and therefore it could be useful in cryptanalysis. Moreover, the conditions are found under which this pseudo random generator passes all the statistical tests provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)."
