The IESG has received a request from the Transport Area Working Group WG
(tsvwg) to consider the following document: - 'TinyMT32 Pseudo Random Number
Generator (PRNG)'
  <draft-ietf-tsvwg-tinymt32-01.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2019-05-13. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.

Abstract


   This document describes the TinyMT32 Pseudo Random Number Generator
   (PRNG) that produces 32-bit pseudo-random unsigned integers and aims
   at having a simple-to-use and deterministic solution.  This PRNG is a
   small-sized variant of Mersenne Twister (MT) PRNG, also designed by
   M.  Saito and M.  Matsumoto.  The main advantage of TinyMT32 over MT
   is the use of a small internal state, compatible with most target
   platforms including embedded devices, while keeping a reasonably good
   randomness.
