There was an article about random number generators in the German 
magazine c't (issue 02/2009). The author of the article is also the 
author of ct-randcam. The article claims that ct-randcam passes all 
common/popular (German: gängig) statistical tests. hotbits is also 
claimed to pass all statistical tests.
