    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?
