#11 fixed Demonstrate Ada on the STM32F4DISCOVERY platform pchapin pchapin

Reported by pchapin, 6 years ago.


I intend to use the STM32F4DISCOVERY platform for the generator itself. I also intend to program it in Ada. I need to demonstrate that I can do these things with a trivial "Hello, World" type program.

#1 closed Where should the statistical tests be placed? pchapin pchapin

Reported by pchapin, 8 years ago.


There are two obvious possibilities: inside the Generator component or in the Library component. If the tests are in the generator they will be done regardless of if the library is present or not. This is more secure; if the library is secretly modified the tests in the generator will still detect degraded randomness.

On the other hand, the statistical tests are likely to be computationally expensive. It would be easier/better/faster to implement those tests in a library on the host computer than in an embedded environment. Anyway if an attacker can replace the library there are other security problems to worry about.

I believe the statistical tests should be in the Library.

#4 closed Decide on embedded platform for Generator pchapin pchapin

Reported by pchapin, 8 years ago.


The Generator component needs a micro-controller to communicate (via USB) with the host system. That controller needs to decode and produce the communications protocol designed for the system. Which micro-controller platform should be used?
