# What is full-entropy bit-strings?

I was going through the description of NIST Randomness Beacon. I would like to know the meaning of the term

full-entropy bit-strings

used in the third paragraph.

• sequences of bits whose entropy is equal to their length $\;$ – user6973 Sep 9 '13 at 8:25

The meaning is a bit string $x$ which is distributed uniformly on $\{0,1\}^{|x|}$.
