Submission + - NIST removes Dual_EC_DRBG from random number generator recommendations (techienews.co.uk)

hypnosec writes: National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has removed the much criticized Dual_EC_DRBG aka Dual Elliptic Curve Deterministic Random Bit Generator from its draft guidance on random number generators following a period of public comment period and review. The revised document retains three of the four previously available options for generating pseudorandom bits required to create secure cryptographic keys for encrypting data. NIST recommends that users using Dual_EC_DRBG should transition to one of the other three recommended algorithms as quickly as possible.
