Alternative Approach to Maurer's Universal Statistical Test

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.
