Question: Rand


dcasimir 1202 Maple
If possible I'd like to get anyone's opinion on the "security", (for lack of a better word), of the rand command, used to generate random numbers or integers. Lately, if you've seen some of my recent blog posts you may have noticed that I've been curious about cryptography, but I still consider myself a novice, if that. My question is, does any of the brilliant and talented people that I've met on mapleprimes think that it may be possible to "cheat" maple's random number generator ? Would it be possible by some sort of manipulation to predict this command's output with some reasonable amount of confidence ? If so, a cryptographic system based on Maple may not be such a good idea. v/r,
