In this paper, a microcontroller-based Additive White Gaussian Noise Generator (AWGNG) for security enhancement of embedded real-time web services running on embedded boards is presented. The scheme utilizes combination of Windows Embedded Standard based Web Service on Vortex86 based embedded system connected to Atmega128 microcontroller generating Additive White Gaussian Noise stream. The real time generated stream can be used as seed for random number generators in many security algorithms. Such algorithms benefit from independently generated random numbers.
