William Hird

Electronics Engineer, Amateur Cryptographer with interests in designing real random and psuedorandom bit generators.

"Randomness is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get"

                                                                   Forrest Gump Jr.

"You can't use mathematical means to create true randomness but you can use mathematical means to stretch a short truly random bitstream into a binary string of virtually infinite length that is indistinguishable from the uniform distribution, the distinguisher being a Universal Turing Machine". John Von Neumann Jr.

"It's trivial to make a Turing machine that fools all other Turing machines into "thinking" that they are looking at an unpredictable uniform distribution. Here is the schematic."

                                                                   Alan Turing Jr.
