Random Bit Generation Workshop 2023

NIST will be hosting a virtual workshop on Random Bit Generation (RBG) as specified in the SP 800-90 series of publications: SP 800-90A (Deterministic Random Bit Generator Mechanisms), SP 800-90B (Entropy Sources), and SP 800-90C (RBG Constructions).

The workshop is scheduled for May 31 - June 1 (10am-3pm EDT each day) and will consist of presentations and discussions about each of the documents, future plans for each document, and testing and validation issues. 

More details on our work can be found on the Random Bit Generation project page.
