STRANDOM is a cryptographically Strong pseudo-RANDOM number
generator suitable for cryptographic applications. It expands a
random seed of 32*k bits into a pseudo-random sequence of 32*t
bits for any k=1,2,3,... and t=1,2,3,... STRANDOM builds itself
on the basic compression function of HAVAL. It supports three
different levels of security (by defining PASS=3, 4 or 5).
Finally, STRANDOM is reasonably fast: when PASS is set to 3, it
produces 23.41 mega-bits per second on UltraSparc (200MHz), and
22.99 mega-bits per second on Pentium Pro 180.
STRANDOM is ready for 64-bit platforms.
