Abstract

Pseudo-Random Number Generators (PRNGs) are required for generating secret keys in cryptographic algo- rithms, generating sequences of packet in Network simulations (workload generators) and other applications in various fields. In this paper we will discuss a list of some requirements for generating a reliable random sequence and then will present some PRNG methods which are based on combinational chaotic logistic map. In the final section after a brief introduction to two statistical test packets, TestU01 and NIST suite tests, the PRNG methods which are presented in the fourth section will be appraised under these test packets and the results will be reported.
