Google has officially announced the open sourcing of ‘Paranoid’, a project for identifying well-known weaknesses in cryptographic artifacts.
The library offers testing capabilities for a variety of cryptographic artifacts, including public keys, general pseudorandom numbers, and digital signatures, to find bugs brought on by faulty coding or the usage of subpar proprietary random number generators. Google claims that Paranoid can investigate any artifact, including those produced by ‘black boxes,’ or systems whose implementations are unknown and whose source code cannot be examined.
According to Google, Paranoid comprises implementations and optimizations that were taken from previously published cryptographic literature and “showed that the production of these artifacts wrong in some circumstances.”
