Perl interface to the ISAAC PRNG Algorithm
Math::Random::ISAAC implements the ISAAC (Indirection, Shift, Accumulate, Add
and Count) pseudorandom number generator (PRNG) algorithm described on the
project page at: <URL:http://burtleburtle.net/bob/rand/isaac.html>
As with other algorithms like the Mersenne Twister (see Math::Random::MT),
this algorithm is designed to take some seed information and produce seemingly
random results as output.
The results are uniformly distributed, unbiased, and unpredictable unless you
know the seed. The algorithm was published by Bob Jenkins in the late 1990s
and despite the best efforts of many security researchers, no feasible attacks
have been found to date.
For comparison with other algorithms intended to generate random data, the
Mersenne Twister has a period of 2^19937-1, the related TT800 has a period
of 2^800-1 values. ISAAC has a period of 2^8295 values on average.
