"NIST is implementing a prototype source of public randomness.

The Beacon is designed to provide unpredictability, autonomy, and
consistency. Unpredictability means that users cannot algorithmically
predict bits before they are made available by the source. Autonomy means
that the source is resistant to attempts by outside parties to alter the
distribution of the random bits. Consistency means that a set of users can
access the source in such a way that they are confident that they all
receive the same random string."
