This article introduces a new online platform for testing binary random number generators. The growing share of low-complex devices in IoT networks increases the demand for basic authorization and authentication tools, the critical block of which is a secure random number generator. Communication devices, therefore, require designers to carry out time-consuming tests and acquire specialist knowledge of statistical testing in evaluation of their results. To meet the current requirements, we have created a test platform to assess the quality of random strings produced by the generator. The presented solution, based on the proprietary evaluation metric, provides feedback on the properties of the uploaded random sequences. Clear interface provides ease of use and by machine learning in the platform’s backend, along with the increase of processed data, the improved quality of the interpretation delivered by the system is ensured. The operation of the platform has been confirmed experimentally, based on the analysis of hardware generators producing random strings with known properties.
