Entropy as a Service EaaS
Cryptography is critical for securing data at rest or in transit over the IoT. But cryptography fails when a device uses easy-to-guess (weak) keys generated from low-entropy random data. Standard deterministic computers have trouble producing good randomness, especially resource-constrained IoT-class devices that have little opportunity to collect local entropy before they begin network communications. The best sources of true randomness are based on unpredictable physical phenomena, such as...
Random Bit Generation RBG
Include revised/updated text from  http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/toolkit/rng/index.html ??   --> The following publications specify the design and implementation of random bit generators (RBGs), in two classes: Deterministic Random Bit Generators (pseudo RBGs); and Non-Deterministic Random bit Generators (True RBGs). SP 800-90A, Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using Deterministic Random Bit Generators June 25, 2015:  This Recommendation specifies mechanisms for the...
Threshold Cryptography TC
The Computer Security Division (CSD) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is interested in promoting the security of implementations and operation of cryptographic primitives. This security depends not only on the theoretical properties of the primitives but also on the ability to withstand attacks on their implementations and operations. It is thus important to mitigate breakdowns that result from differences between ideal and real implementations of cryptographic...
