Erlang, random numbers, and the security - Kenji Rikitake

In this talk, Kenji will discuss the history of how random numbers are treated in Erlang/OTP and the inherent security weakness, describe the experience of implementing better pseudo random number generators (PRNGs), and provide possible future perspectives for making the PRNGs compatible with massive multi-core environments.
