# [−][src]Struct rand_isaac::isaac64::Isaac64Rng

A random number generator that uses ISAAC-64, the 64-bit variant of the ISAAC algorithm.

ISAAC stands for "Indirection, Shift, Accumulate, Add, and Count" which are
the principal bitwise operations employed. It is the most advanced of a
series of array based random number generator designed by Robert Jenkins
in 1996^{1}.

ISAAC-64 is mostly similar to ISAAC. Because it operates on 64-bit integers instead of 32-bit, it uses twice as much memory to hold its state and results. Also it uses different constants for shifts and indirect indexing, optimized to give good results for 64bit arithmetic.

ISAAC-64 is notably fast and produces excellent quality random numbers for non-cryptographic applications.

In spite of being designed with cryptographic security in mind, ISAAC hasn't
been stringently cryptanalyzed and thus cryptographers do not not
consensually trust it to be secure. When looking for a secure RNG, prefer
`Hc128Rng`

from the `rand_hc`

crate instead, which, like ISAAC, is an
array-based RNG and one of the stream-ciphers selected the by eSTREAM

## Overview of the ISAAC-64 algorithm:

(in pseudo-code)

```
Input: a, b, c, s[256] // state
Output: r[256] // results
mix(a,i) = !(a ^ a << 21) if i = 0 mod 4
a ^ a >> 5 if i = 1 mod 4
a ^ a << 12 if i = 2 mod 4
a ^ a >> 33 if i = 3 mod 4
c = c + 1
b = b + c
for i in 0..256 {
x = s_[i]
a = mix(a,i) + s[i+128 mod 256]
y = a + b + s[x>>3 mod 256]
s[i] = y
b = x + s[y>>11 mod 256]
r[i] = b
}
```

This implementation uses `BlockRng64`

to implement the `RngCore`

methods.
