In cryptography, a distribution ensemble or probability ensemble is a family of distributions or random variables X = \{X_i\}_{i \in I} where I is a (countable) index set, and each X_i is a random variable, or probability distribution. Often I=\N and it is required that each X_n have a certain property for n sufficiently large.

A uniform ensemble U = \{U_n\}_{n \in \mathbb{N}} is a distribution ensemble, uniformly distributed over strings of length n.
