Xiphera’s FPGA-based TRNG consists of an independent entropy source, online health tests and a standard compliant AES-CBC-MAC -based entropy extractor. The design complies with NIST SP 800-90B. More information can be found on Xiphera’s TRNG product description.
In AWS platform TRNG can be evaluated for free for 14 days by collecting random data and analyzing it with provided free statistical tools. TRNG can also be added to an existing design to provide required randomness.

Follow the instructions based on your deployment method.
An access key "cred.json" may be obtained through the Xilinx Acceleration Application Store.
scp -I $AWS_ACCESS_KEY cred.json centos@$AWS_PUBLIC_IPV4 ssh -i "~/key.pem" centos@$AWS_PUBLIC_IPV4
git clone https://github.com/Xilinx/Xilinx_Base_Runtime.git source Xilinx_Base_Runtime/utilities/xilinx_aws_docker_setup.sh
git clone https://github.com/aws/aws-fpga.git /home/centos/aws-fpga source /home/centos/aws-fpga/sdk_setup.sh
sudo docker pull hubxilinx/xiphera_trng_aws_f1:beta
sudo fpga-load-local-image -S 0 -I agfi-03230dd76853a942b source aws-fpga/sdk_setup.sh
sudo docker run -it -v /home/centos/cred.json:/cred.json -v ~/:/random/ $XILINX_AWS_DOCKER_DEVICES hubxilinx/xiphera_trng_aws_f1:beta
-v /home/centos/cred.json:/cred.json- Map the Access Key “cred.json” to docker volume
-v ~/:/random/- Map the volume where random binary data file is saved, ~/ can be changed
$XILINX_AWS_DOCKER_DEVICES– Passes the FPGA device to docker
On the CLI output you can monitor the random data collection. CLI shows the amount of random data written to a file and in addition the average byterate of the TRNG and the elapsed time in seconds.
The application stops automatically when one gibibyte (1 GiB) is collected in the binary file xip8001b.bin.
This file can be transferred to local machine for analysing or it can be done also in the cloud. Xiphera recommended test suites are Practrand, gjrand and TestU01. Xiphera provides instructions and scripts for using these randomness assessment suites. You can access these instructions and scripts from Xiphera’s GitHub.
