Computer random number generators are important in mathematics, cryptography and gambling (on game servers).

This list includes many common types, regardless of quality.

Pseudorandom number generators (PRNGs)[edit]

The following algorithms are pseudorandom number generators:

Hardware (true) random number generators (TRNGs)[edit]

The following is a list of companies that produce hardware random number generators:

Cryptographic algorithms[edit]

Cipher algorithms and cryptographic hashes can also be used as pseudorandom number generators. These include:

Random number generators that use external entropy[edit]
