ABSTRACT

Randomness in computer science is a tricky subject. In this talk we'll explore basic theoretical concepts regarding entropy, we'll learn about the dozens of places where randomness appears in everybody's day-to-day software development --even when we're not explicitly using it--, and we'll demonstrate through practical examples how a lack of understanding of randomness can cause bugs and security vulnerabilities in our code.
