Szrek’s Electronic Draw System Attested for Nonrepudiation and Conclusive Fault and Fraud Detection
Bulletproof, a GLI company, recently evaluated Szrek2Solutions’ RNG solution, Trusted Draw™ and Trusted Audit™. The final report ‘Independent Review of Security and Nonrepudiation of the Szrek2Solutions Electronic Draw System (EDS)’ validated Szrek’s RNG draw solution as meeting or exceeding the best practices by providing conclusive auditability and proof of integrity.
To quote from the executive summary of the report:
“The assessed electronic draw system, Trusted Draw, utilizes cryptographic hardware and algorithms in its methodology to provide proof of integrity through nonrepudiation in the generation of random numbers [italics added for emphasis by Szrek2Solutions]. It creates unpredictable, unmodifiable data which is independently verifiable. Hardware as well as software faults and attacks against the RNG and its components are conclusively detectable.
The use of the independent Trusted Audit system completes the chain of trust in random number generation through validation and independent audit of the draw results. It verifies the seed for the random number generation and the supplied result data. Then it recreates the draw results and thus provides conclusive proof of integrity and nonrepudiation in the random number and draw result generation process.”
Bulletproof identified the key integrity factors of the Szrek RNG:
“The capability to detect hardware faults, software problems and fraud attempts, and to reproduce or verify the draw results, are key integrity factors in the Szrek2Solutions EDS. In Bulletproof’s experience, primarily protective security measures have been the focus in EDS solutions in the industry so far, lacking reproducibility and conclusive verifiability of the draw results.”
