The method calls for estimation of network delay using maximal length pseudorandom binary sequence correlation followed by estimation of the signal error through the network adjusted by the delay estimate.
The RC4 encryption method has 4 processes [11] namely: S-Box initialization, Key to byte Array, s-Box Permutation and Pseudorandom.
It is common practice to use pseudorandom generators with uniform PDF of numbers together with the digital-to-analog converter (DAC) [7].
Selective Availability actually introduced error into the system, using a cryptographic algorithm to generate pseudorandom errors that were then incorporated into the signal feed.
Since the encryption key is generated by an oblivious pseudorandom function and the key generation request is bounded by rate-limiting, outsourced data can be protected from brute force attack.
Then, pseudorandom numbers of these 4,000 discontinuities were generated for the five elements, namely the X-coordinate, 7-coordinate, Z-coordinate, diameter and aperture.
In the tag generation phase, the client uses a pseudorandom number generator to generate a series of pseudorandom numbers and then multiplies the video file blocks with pseudorandom numbers to obtain the tag.
