On almost every computer system, external devices communicate relevant asynchronous events, such information being made available from the network card or the keyboard, using a hardware interrupt mechanism. Each device has an assigned hardware interrupt (IRQ) number and reports important developments by changing the voltage on a designated hardware line inside the computer, corresponding to […]

The Security of Random Number Generators

Programmers have invented many ways for computers to generate seemingly random numbers; the general name for these algorithms is pseudorandom number generators (PRNGs).
