KATs Followup...

OpenSSLGRT

Earlier I posted saying I needed to do the following for 0.9.8a:

Startup Known Answer Tests: RSA, 3DES, Pseudorandom Number Generator (PRNG), and HMAC SHA-1

As well as:

-Continuous Random Number Generator Test for the PRNG

-Continuous Random Number Generator Test to test the entropy of the RNG.

 

I figured out how to do the KATs for RSA, DES, Rand, and HMAC SHA-1 (yeahhh!)

 

The thing I am not sure of is what is Continuous Random Number Generator Test to test the entropy of the RNG? I assume it is a rand test that keeps looking at he previous test results and gathers some stats on that?

***Does anyone have an example of testing this or how it is done?

 

Ahhh… if only I could use 0.9.7 it would be great since these tests are built into it – but I must use 0.9.8a so I need to make my own tests.

 

Thank you!
