Re: Radiation Detectors from Aware Electronics
Sorry for the rude question. I have been following this thread
closely but must have missed the original message regarding using
radiation detectors to produce random numbers.

Generating good random numbers is key to operating a solid
cryptographic system. I've argued that computer interfaced radiation
detectors are the optimal way of generating such numbers because they
are hard to screw up -- biased diode noise and other sources are too
easy to misdesign or misuse. Aware is a source of such detectors.
