NIST hosted a virtual workshop on Random Bit Generation (RBG) as specified in the SP 800-90 series of publications: SP 800-90A (Deterministic Random Bit Generator Mechanisms), SP 800-90B (Entropy Sources), and SP 800-90C (RBG Constructions).

The workshop was held May 31- June 1 (10am-3pm EDT each day) and consisted of presentations and discussions about each of the documents, future plans for each document, and testing and validation issues.
