The main aim of this paper is to present the concept of fault-injection backdoors in Random Number Generators. Backdoors can be activated by fault-injection techniques. Presented algorithms can be used in embedded systems like smart-cards and hardware security modules in order to implement subliminal channels in random number generators.
