The Generation of
Random Numbers

Workshop on "Quantum Random Number Generation"

Random number generations are essential for numerical simulations and cryptography. Within the vast development of quantum technologies so-called quantum random number generators (QRNGs) emerge more and more. Quantum physics offers genuine randomness, which may be utilized for developing QRNG devices.  

Time: January 23rd (~ 9 am) to 24th (~ 4 pm), 2020

Location: Fraunhofer IOF, Albert-Einstein-Straße 7, 07745 Jena, Germany (How to get there)

Fee: workshop is without charge; snacks and business lunches will be provided; dinner is organized on a self-payment basis in the city center of Jena

Agenda: will be announced soon

Registration: see form below (registration possible until December 20th, 2019)

 

The workshop is intended to stimulate the scientific exchange between quantum physicists and cryptographers. There will be a few fixed talks but with plenty of time for extensive discussions. In case you would like to give a talk, please select this option in the registration form. We will select the best fitting topics for presentation.

The following key points are intended to stimulate discussions and to give orientation on the content:

  • What is a QUANTUM random number generator?
  • Do QRNGs need a customized quality/randomness check or how to they fit into the AIS 31 (German standard for random number generators)
  • Are QRNG simply physical random number generators? What is the difference and what are the advantages/disadvantages?
  • How would a standard look like and how would be the synchronization with NIST and other standard institutes
  • Device independent QRNG
  • Understanding the epsilon criteria
  • What types of QRNGs do exist?
  • Can physical parameters evaluate or help to evaluate their performance/randomness?

Currently confirmed talks held by

  • Prof. Dr. Werner Schindler (Federal Office for Information Security)
  • Prof. Dr. Renato Renner (ETH Zürich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich)
  • Dr. Torsten Schütze (Rohde & Schwarz SIT GmbH)
