Researchers Improve Random-Number Generation with Forced Memory ‘Twitching’

A German research team has now developed a true random number generator that
uses an extra layer of randomness by making a computer memory element,
a flip-flop, twitch randomly between its two states 1 or 0. Immediately
prior to the switch, the flip-flop is in a “metastable state” where its
behavior cannot be predicted. Read the full article. [ScienceDaily]
