Computer scientists in the United States have just made a huge cybersecurity breakthrough. The scientists have been able to develop a new method that produces truly random numbers. These numbers can be used to greatly improve the data encryption which in turn improves the security for electronic voting, consumer credit card transactions and military communications.
The method takes two weakly random sequences and then converts them into a single sequence of true random numbers.
At the present, there are only two methods available to generate random numbers. The first one select numbers from a pre generated list of strings, the other uses algorithms that automatically develop long series of random numbers.
