NIST requests comments on two Draft publications for random bit generation: Draft SP 800-90B, Recommendation for the Entropy Sources Used for Random Bit Generation and Draft SP 800-90C, Recommendation for Random Bit Generator (RBG) Constructions. SP 800-90B specifies the design principles and requirements for the entropy sources used by Random Bit Generators, and the tests for the validation of entropy sources. A list of questions relating to SP 800-90B is also provided for reviewers.
SP 800-90C specifies constructions for the implementation of random bit generators (RBGs). An RBG may be a deterministic random bit generator (DRBG) or a non-deterministic random bit generator (NRBG). The constructed RBGs consist of DRBG mechanisms as specified SP 800-90A and entropy sources as specified in SP 800-90B.
