NIST random gen tester
Hey guys, I am currently writing a random number generator for a crypto class I am taking and am trying to test it with the NIST random number tester suit but I can not seem to get it to work properly under linux. So i figured I would ask if any one here has ever used it before or if they know some ware I can get more information on this tool. I have read NIST pdf documentation and did some google searching but I haven't been able to turn up any information to get it to work. Any help is very appreciated thank you

I am not sure, but I thought that the definitive Linux rng tester was "dieharder"?
I believe that it incorporates (or was going to) the NIST tests?
You might look here:
Or check out Google for more information?
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
