True random numbers are here — what that means for data centers

The Entropy Engine can deliver 350 Mbps of true random numbers—enough to give a data center enough random data to dramatically improve all cryptographic processes

For many decades, the term “random numbers” meant “pseudo-random numbers” to anyone who thought much about the issue and understood that computers simply were not equipped to produce anything that was truly random.

Manufacturers did what they could, grabbing some signals from the likes of mouse movement, keyboard activity, system interrupts, and packet collisions just to get a modest sampling of random data to improve the security of their cryptographic processes.
v And the bad guys worked at breaking the encryption.
We used longer keys and better algorithms.

And the bad guys kept at it. And life went on.

But something recently changed all that.
