TrueRNG 10GB Entropy Test + Windows C++ Class
First off I want to thank Scott M for supplying us his class file for other people getting started writing a custom application for the TrueRNG in windows. His class file is here, it is also linked on the support tab of the product page.
Second, we wondered what the entropy data would look like if we captured 10 GB of data from the TrueRNG. Well it took awhile, but here are the results using the ent package under Ubuntu.
Entropy = 7.999994 bits per byte. Optimum compression would reduce the size of this 10737418240 byte file by 0 percent. Chi square distribution for 10737418240 samples is 95955.77, and randomly would exceed this value 0.01 percent of the times. Arithmetic mean value of data bytes is 127.5090 (127.5 = random). Monte Carlo value for Pi is 3.141487003 (error 0.00 percent). Serial correlation coefficient is 0.000012 (totally uncorrelated = 0.0).
We are really happy with those numbers.Tagged
