    • a process that appears to be random but it is not
    • Pseudorandom sequences typically exhibit statistical randomness while being generated by an entirely deterministic causal process.
    • It can be used again and again to produce exactly the same numbers.
  • The Advanced Encryption Standard published in 2001 uses a key size of (at minimum) 128 bits. It also can use keys up to 256 bits (a specification requirement for submissions to the AES contest). 128 bits is currently thought, by many observers, to be sufficient for the foreseeable future for symmetric algorithms of AES's quality. The U.S. Government requires 192 or 256-bit AES keys for highly sensitive data.
