Gigabit Random Number Generator Based on 24MP 30fps Image Sensor

James Hughes and Yash Gupta from UCSC present their idea of Gigabit random number generator for cryptography:

  1. What to address first - that he had trouble, he said, "getting" the e-h thermal generation process in semiconductors, or that he seems to be unaware of people using image sensors for several years now to product random numbers? On the former, knowing dark noise in image sensors comes from many sources with different statistics, I would worry this could skew the randomness or lead to temperature variation in the randomness. Regarding previous use of image sensors, check this blog. Or,for example, here is our joint paper with ID Quantique using the QIS for this (and which gave great results).
