Acoustic Lightweight Pseudo Random Number Generator based on Cryptographically Secure LFSR

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Feb. 2018

In this paper, we propose a secure, lightweight acoustic pseudo-random number generator (SLA-LFSR-PRNG) that consumes less memory, CPU capacity and adopts the multi-thread parallelization to generate huge random numbers per second by taking the advantages of multi-core CPU and massively parallel architecture of GPU. The generator is based on cryptographically secure Linear Feedback Shift Register(LFSR) and extracts the entropy from sound sources. The major attraction of proposed Pseudo Random Number Generator(PRNG) is its immunity to major attacks on pseudo-random number generators. The paper presents test results of proposed PRNG subjected to NIST SP 800-22 statistical test suite and also shows the performance comparison of proposed generator on different systems.
