true random source

A true random source is a theoretical random number generator that is perfect in every way. The next value produced is completely uncorrelated with all previous values.

Random number statistical tests that run in polynomial time determine the likelihood (or lack thereof) that a given finite set of data could have been produced by a true random source.

For a sequence of generated numbers to pass a statistical test, said sequence must pass with the same level of confidence as an equivalent length sequence from a true random source.
