It is crucial to security that cryptographic keys are generated with a truly random or at least a pseudo-random generation process
Otherwise , an attacker might reproduce the key generation process and easily find the key used to secure a specific communication

Motivation

Otherwise , an attacker might reproducethe key generation process and easilyfind the key used to secure a specificcommunication
 
Motivation
In cryptography, we are often in a situationwhere we need a random integer or arandom sequence of bits.
For example, secret keys are often requiredto be random. But what does that reallymean?
If we flip a coin eight times and assign 0 toone of the sides and 1 to the other, thenthe sequence 00000000 is just as likely asthe sequence 10011100.
Still, our intuition tells us that the secondsequence is “more random” than the firstone.
But actually, humans are quite bad atconsciousl creatin random seuences
