Leverage the power of Real Random's proprietary entropy generation Zentropy with a universal password manager for security-conscious organizations to white-label for their clients and customers. If you are looking for the ultimate security, try Cryptex here or watch our video here.
Cryptography is fundamentally important for information security, whether the information is data in transit over the Internet or at rest. Today the security of data protected by cryptography depends not on secret algorithms, but primarily on having strong keys and keeping them secret.
Generating strong cryptographic keys is no simple matter, however. Experts recommend using deterministic random bit generators (DRBGs) but the sequence of numbers generated by a DRBG can be traced predictably to the seed (initial value) supplied to the generator. Knowing the seed, one can reconstruct the number sequence produced by a particular DRBG, thus DRBGs must be seeded with hard-to-guess random data from a reliable source.
In theory, such so-called “high-entropy” sources provide true randomness but concerns about cryptographic keys’ potential weakness are not just theoretical, as evidenced by some recent real-life examples of catastrophic security breaches resulting from poorly constructed or predictable cryptographic keys.
Real Random has developed a method to create those seeds, we call Zentropy. Our system includes our physical non-deterministic random bit generator, which uses physical media to create a random stream of unpredictable bits.
Learn more about what's driving the need for real entropy in cryptographic systems. Read what the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has to say about the vulnerabilities of poor entropy and offering Entropy as a Service (EaaS).
Your keys may not be as secure as you believe. According to NIST, "The importance of obtaining and using highly unpredictable keys is not just an academic question. There are many practical examples showing that failure to obtain sufficient entropy destroys any security provided by long keys and sound algorithms."
Zentropy offers an EaaS solution to make it easier to obtain sufficient entropy for even the largest organizations and the exponential growth in devices and services, like IoT, that consume great amounts of entropy. Real Random adheres to NIST's framework for EaaS, which you can read more about here.
