NIST has two draft publications on randomness generation, and is asking
> NIST requests comments on two Draft publications for random bit generation:
> Draft SP 800-90B, Recommendation for the Entropy Sources Used for Random Bit
> Generation and Draft SP 800-90C, Recommendation for Random Bit Generator (RBG)
> SP 800-90B specifies the design principles and requirements for the entropy
> sources used by Random Bit Generators and the tests for the validation of
> entropy sources. A list of questions relating to SP 800-90B is also provided
> for reviewers.
> SP 800-90C specifies constructions for the implementation of random bit
> generators (RBGs). An RBG may be a deterministic random bit generator (DRBG) or
> a non-deterministic random bit generator (NRBG). The constructed RBGs consist
> of DRBG mechanisms as specified SP 800-90A and entropy sources as specified in
> SP 800-90B. SP 800-90A is available at http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/ > PubsSPs.html#800-90A.
> Please send comments to rbg_co...@nist.gov by December 5, 2012. For the
> comments on SP 800-90B, please put “Comments on Entropy Sources” in the subject
> line. For the comments on SP 800-90C, please put “Comments on RBG
> Constructions” in the subject line.
