Abstract

A novel multiple-output pseudo-random-bit generator (PRBG) based on a coupled map lattice (CML) consisting of skew tent maps, which generates spatiotemporal chaos, is presented. In order to guarantee PRBG highly effective, avoiding synchronization among the sites in the CML is discussed. The cryptographic properties, such as probability distribution, auto-correlation and cross-correlation, of the PRBG with various parameters, are investigated numerically. The randomness of the PRBG is verified via FIPS 140-2. In addition, as compared with the PRBG based on the CML consisting of the logistic maps, which are often used in chaos-based PRBGs by many other researchers, the ranges of the parameters within which this multiple-output PRBG have good cryptographic properties are much bigger in terms of their cryptographic properties. It lays a foundation for designing a faster and more secure encryption.
