Pôle Images et Réseaux - SPRING (2008-2009)
The aim of the Spring (Shelf Proof Random Integrated Number Generator) project is the design of high-performance and high-rate Quasi-True Random Number Generators. Randomness comes from the random jitter of clock generators in last FPGAs or SoCs. The main contribution is the capacity of the system to measure in real-time the jitter and to characterize the randomness quality using hardware accelerated statistic tests. Spring involves a close collaboration with SmartQuantum, a start-up company developing systems for quantum cryptography.
