Abstract: Several procedures designed to test randomness of binary sequences are reviewed. Necessary modifications to the existing document ``A statistical test suite for the validation of cryptographic random number generators'', Special NIST Publication, NIST, Gaithersburg, 2000, are given. A rebuttal of some critisim of this document is also provided.
