Testing Random Number Generators

HWRNG is intended to dynamically analyze the stream of random bits it produces to verify its randomness. Verifying randomness is difficult in general. Verifying randomness in "real time" is even more difficult because insufficient history is available when the stream is first started. This page contains links to various resources on the Internet pertaining to randomness testing.
