PROTECT YOUR DATA CENTER AND ENSURE TRUE RANDOMNESS

WHITEWOOD’S NETRANDOM PRODUCT FAMILY PROVIDES A WAY TO STANDARDIZE ACCESS TO HIGH-QUALITY TRUE RANDOM NUMBERS ACROSS DISTRIBUTED APPLICATIONS. EACH APPLICATION INSTANCE OR IOT DEVICE USES THE NETRANDOM CLIENT APPLICATION TO REQUEST TRUE RANDOM NUMBERS OVER THE NETWORK FROM A CENTRAL NETRANDOM SERVER. RANDOM NUMBERS ARE SECURELY DELIVERED TO THE CLIENT WHERE THEY CAN BE USED DIRECTLY VIA THE NETRANDOM API OR FED INTO THE LOCAL OPERATING SYSTEM ENTROPY POOL WHERE THEY ENABLE FREQUENT AND HIGH-QUALITY RESEEDING TO RADICALLY IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF EXISTING RANDOM SERVICE CALLS.

FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE CONTEXT OF LINUX, EXISTING APPLICATIONS CAN CONTINUE TO USE DEV/RANDOM AND DEV/URANDOM AS BEFORE BUT NOW WITH THE ASSURANCE THAT THOSE SERVICES ARE PROVIDING THE HIGHEST QUALITY RANDOM NUMBERS WITHOUT BLOCKING.

“We believe that attacks against random number sources and key management systems are on the rise and represent a highly attractive target for would-be hackers.” Richard Moulds

WHAT WE DO

Whitewood enables its customers to strengthen random number generation across their entire application infrastructure. With solutions that span datacenters, cloud and embedded systems our customers are able to ensure that critical security applications can always have access to true random numbers. Without true randomness, applications that rely on cryptography suffer from degraded security. Random number generation is often taken for granted and failures or backdoors are almost impossible to detect. Without Whitewood’s solutions, each device and virtual machine is forced to rely on whatever local noise sources are available. Across an application infrastructure this creates weaknesses and inconsistencies that can be exploited to devastating effect.

Our netRandom product supplements exiting entropy sources to ensure all applications instances have access to true random numbers. By supplying data centers, remote clouds and devices with pure quantum entropy the netRandom Server delivers consistency and assurance to security critical applications. netRandom is easy to install, works with existing applications and takes the risk out of random numbers.
