The Lava Lamps That Help Keep The Internet Secure

Ho visto questo video su YouTube e mi è piaciuto.

Descrizione: At the headquarters of Cloudflare, in San Francisco, there’s a wall of lava lamps: the Entropy Wall. They’re used to generate random numbers and keep a good bit of the internet secure: here’s how.

Thanks to the team at Cloudflare – this is not a sponsored video, they just had interesting lava lamps! There’s a technical rundown of the system on their blog here: https://blog.cloudflare.com/lavarand-in-production-the-nitty-gritty-technical-details
