Project: Development of a quantum random number generator network server

Acronym: QuRunner
Main Objective:
The main scientific objectives of the QuRunner project are:

1. Design and implementation of a QRNG based on vacuum states, and all DSP algorithms to extract bits from the generator;
2. Analysis of imperfections in the physical realization of a QRNG and protocol design for source device independent QRNG;
3. System integration on a standard network server to provide true random numbers.
4. Characterization and validation of the QRNG prototype by using the IT internal network to provide true random numbers for all research groups and researchers at IT.
