A Self-timed Ring Based True Random Number Generator


Self-timed rings are oscillators in which several events can evolve evenly-spaced in time thanks to analog effects inherent to the ring stage structure. One of their interesting features is that they provide precise high-speed multiphase signals. This paper presents a true random number generator that exploits the jitter of events propagating in a self-timed ring with a high entropy. Designs implemented in Altera Cyclone III and Xilinx Virtex 5 devices provide high quality random bit sequences passing FIPS 140-1 and NIST SP 800-22 statistical tests at a high bit rate.
