The provision of cybersecurity is of basic importance for every effective information system. It is possible to provide most rich information services, but only one neglected cybersecurity risk may compromise the system and all services it provides. Therefore, meeting the cybersecurity requirements is a prerequisite for the safety and security of IT infrastructures, digital resources, and the protection of private data. In that respect, the themes of cryptography and sufficiently robust random number generation are of particular interest. This article looks for the “golden ratio” between the provision of mass services and the efforts to meet cybersecurity requirements. It suggests a method and discusses the possibilities to increase the cryptographic protection in information systems.
