Verifiable Random Beacon provides verifiable random bits as a service.
In the context of random bit generation, verifiability means users and auditors can independently confirm the bits originated from a specific random process, were generated correctly, and are indistinguishable from ideal independent uniform random bits.
Most providers of public randomness produce bits that are traceable to the provider, but not to the entropy source that generated them. The provider owns the entropy source, which means the user must trust the provider. By providing verifiable random bits, our bits are safe for use even if our service were to become compromised.

All beacon outputs are signed using SHA-256 with 4096-bit RSA. The random bit string and signature are encoded using a Base64 encoding.
