CASP+ CAS-003 – Question 157


A security engineer is attempting to increase the randomness of numbers used in key generation in a system. The goal of the effort is to strengthen the keys against predictive analysis attacks.

Which of the following is the BEST solution?

A. Use an entropy-as-a-service vendor to leverage larger entropy pools.
B. Loop multiple pseudo-random number generators in a series to produce larger numbers.
C. Increase key length by two orders of magnitude to detect brute forcing.
D. Shift key generation algorithms to ECC algorithms.

Correct Answer: A
