To provide a more reliable service, the QRNG@ANU API is now hosted on AWS platform. Please visit our new service at ANU Quantum Numbers. The old service will be scaled back and eventually retired.
The QRNG@ANU JSON API supports three parameters. These are:
- Data type, the data type must be ‘uint8’ (returns integers between 0–255), ‘uint16’ (returns integers between 0–65535) or ‘hex16’ (returns hexadecimal characters between 00–ff).
- Array length, the length of the array to return. Must be between 1–1024.
- Block size, only needed for ‘hex16’ data type. Sets the length of each block. Must be between 1–1024.

If the request is successful, the random numbers are returned in a JSON encoded array named ‘data’.
