Exercises: Pseudo-Random Generator
Write a code to generate 30 pseudo-random integers in the range [1...10], starting from certain entropy, taken as input, using HMAC key derivation.
From the entropy generate a seed (256-bit binary sequence) using SHA-256:
1
seed = SHA256(entropy)
Copied!
Generate the n-th random number by the formula:
1
1 + HMAC-SHA256(n, seed) % 10
Copied!
Print the numbers at the output, separated by space.
