A True Random Number Generator Method Embedded in Wireless Communication Systems

Toshinori Suzuki, Masahiro Kaminaga

To increase the number of wireless devices, e.g., mobile or IoT terminals, cryptosystems are essential for secure communications. In this regard, random number generation is crucial because the appropriate function of cryptosystems relies on it to work properly. This paper proposes a true random number generator (TRNG) method capable of working in wireless communication systems. By embedding a TRNG in such systems, no additional analog circuits are required and working conditions can be limited as long as wireless communication systems are functioning properly, making TRNG method cost-effective. We also present some theoretical background and considerations. We next conduct experimental verification, which strongly supports the viability of the proposed method.
