Proceedings of the John Hall Symposium in honor of John Hall on the occasion of his 70th birthday : University of Colorado, Boulder, CO, USA, 13-15 August 2004 by John Hall Symposium ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This symposium was a dedication to John L. Hall, who was recently awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, (report below). The symposium was a celebration of his striking career in physics and his impressive record of achievements. Papers included in this volume offer brief and personal glimpses of some of his achievements, the research he inspired, and the great friendships he has built. Nobel Prize Report : John L. Hall, a Scientist Emeritus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and a Fellow of JILA (joint institute of NIST and University of Colorado) has been awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics. Hall shared the Nobel with Theodor W. Hansch of the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and a professor of physics at Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich, Germany, and Roy J. Glauber, a professor of physics at Harvard University. Hall and Hansch were awarded half the Nobel Prize for their contributions to the development of laser-based precision spectroscopy, including the optical frequency comb technique. An optical frequency comb is generated by a laser specially designed to produce a series of extremely short - a few billionths of a second - equally spaced pulses of light

A statistical test suite for random and pseudorandom number generators for cryptographic applications by Andrew L Rukhin ( )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This paper discusses some aspects of selecting and testing random and pseudorandom--number generators. The outputs of such generators may be used in many cryptographic--applications, such as the generation of key material. Generators suitable for use in--cryptographic applications may need to meet stronger requirements than for other--applications. In particular, their outputs must be unpredictable in the absence of--knowledge of the inputs. Some criteria for characterizing and selecting appropriate--generators are discussed in this document. The subject of statistical testing and its--relation to cryptanalysis is also discussed, and some recommended statistical tests are--provided. These tests may be useful as a first step in determining whether or not a--generator is suitable for a particular cryptographic application. However, no set of--statistical tests can absolutely certify a generator as appropriate for usage in a particular--application, i.e., statistical testing cannot serve as a substitute for cryptanalysis. The--design and cryptanalysis of generators is outside the scope of this paper."--Page 2
Guidelines on active content and mobile code recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology by Wayne A Jansen ( )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The private and public sectors depend heavily upon (IT) systems to perform essential, mission-critical functions. As existing technology evolves and new technologies are introduced to provide improved capabilities and advanced features in systems, new technology-related vulnerabilities often arise. Organizations implementing and using advanced technologies, therefore, must be increasingly on guard. One such category of technologies is active content. Broadly speaking, active content refers to electronic documents that, unlike past character documents based on the American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) and related character sets, can carry out or trigger actions automatically without an individual directly or knowingly invoking the actions. Therefore, exploits based on vulnerabilities in active content technologies by their very nature can be particularly insidious. The following key guidelines are recommended to Federal departments and agencies for dealing with active content
