A Million Random Digits
There is much to be said about randomness and many recommend using truly random password generators. However, sometimes you just don’t have internet access to visit a random password generator web site. The solution? this book contains six hundred pages of nothing but random numbers (see sample below). According to the Amazon.com description, “This book was a product of RAND’s pioneering work in computing, as well a testament to the patience and persistence of researchers in the early days of RAND.”
What is interesting here is the Introduction–which you can read online–of how, in 1947, they produced truly random data.
Of course, before you go out and but this book, you may want to go read the 270+ customer reviews.
