Title: On the Existence of Pseudo-Random Generators
Authors: O. Goldreich, R. Krawczyk and M. Luby
Abstract: Pseudorandom generators [BM, Y] are efficient deterministic programs that expand a randomly selected k-bit seed into a much longer pseudorandom bit sequence which is indistinguishable in polynomial-time from a sequence of unbiased coin tosses. Thus, pseudorandom sequences can replace truly random sequences in all practical (i.e. polynomial-time) applications.
