Generating random numbers and random sequences that are indistinguishable from truly random sequences is an important task for cryptography. To measure the randomness, statistical randomness tests are applied to the generated numbers and sequences. Knuth test suite is the one of the first statistical randomness suites. This suite, however, is mostly for real number sequences and the parameters of the tests are not given explicitly.

Alternative Approach to Maurer's Universal Statistical Test
Tezcan, Cihangir; Doğanaksoy, Ali (null; 2008-12-01)
Statistical tests for randomness play an important role in cryptography since many cryptographic applications require random or pseudorandom numbers. In this study, we introduce an alternative approach to Maurer’s Universal Test. This approach allows us to test short binary sequences as small as 66 bits and to choose slightly larger block sizes. Moreover, it does not have an initialization part and requires less time to test a binary sequence.
On the independence of statistical randomness tests included in the NIST test suite
SULAK, FATİH; Uğuz, Muhiddin; Koçak, Onur Ozan; Doğanaksoy, Ali (2017-01-01)
Random numbers and random sequences are used to produce vital parts of cryptographic algorithms such as encryption keys and therefore the generation and evaluation of random sequences in terms of randomness are vital. Test suites consisting of a number of statistical randomness tests are used to detect the nonrandom characteristics of the sequences. Construction of a test suite is not an easy task. On one hand, the coverage of a suite should be wide; that is, it should compare the sequence under considerati...
Mutual correlation of NIST statistical randomness tests and comparison of their sensitivities on transformed sequences
Doğanaksoy, Ali; Uğuz, Muhiddin; Akcengiz, Ziya (2017-01-01)
Random sequences are widely used in many cryptographic applications and hence their generation is one of the main research areas in cryptography. Statistical randomness tests are introduced to detect the weaknesses or nonrandom characteristics that a sequence under consideration may have. In the literature, there exist various statistical randomness tests and test suites, defined as a collection of tests. An efficient test suite should consist of a number of uncorrelated statistical tests each of which meas...
New Statistical Randomness Tests Based on Length of Runs
Doğanaksoy, Ali; SULAK, FATİH; Uğuz, Muhiddin; Seker, Okan; Akcengiz, Ziya (2015-01-01)
Random sequences and random numbers constitute a necessary part of cryptography. Many cryptographic protocols depend on random values. Randomness is measured by statistical tests and hence security evaluation of a cryptographic algorithm deeply depends on statistical randomness tests. In this work we focus on statistical distributions of runs of lengths one, two, and three. Using these distributions we state three new statistical randomness tests. New tests use chi(2) distribution and, therefore, exact valu...
Efficient subquadratic space complexity binary polynomial multipliers based on block recombination
Cenk, Murat; Negre, Christophe (2014-09-01)
Some applications like cryptography involve a large number of multiplications of binary polynomial. In this paper we consider two, three and four-way methods for parallel implementation of binary polynomial multiplication. We propose optimized three and four-way split formulas which reduce the space and time complexity of the best known methods. Moreover, we present a block recombination method which provides some further reduction in the space complexity of the considered two, three and four-way split mult...
