**HOW THE RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR WORKS **
The random number generators used today are based on computer algorithms or the randomness of physical processes, meaning they are essentially complex versions of rolling dice over and over again to get random numbers.

But while the numbers generated appear to be random, knowing certain information, such as how many ‘dice’ are being used, can allow hackers to work out the numbers, leaving secured data vulnerable.

To overcome this problem, the new chip generates random numbers based on the quantum properties of light - a process that is inherently random and therefore impossible to predict no matter how much information is known.
