Abstract
<p>A pseudorandom number generator is widely used in cryptography. A cryptographic pseudorandom number generator is required to generate pseudorandom numbers which have good statistical properties as well as unpredictability. An msequence is a linear feedback shift register sequence with maximal period over a finite field. Msequences have good statistical properties, however we must nonlinearize msequences for cryptographic purposes. A geometric sequence is a binary sequence given by applying a nonlinear feedforward function to an msequence. Nogami, Tada and Uehara proposed a geometric sequence whose nonlinear feedforward function is given by the Legendre symbol. They showed the geometric sequences have good properties for the period, periodic autocorrelation and linear complexity. However, the geometric sequences do not have the balance property. In this paper, we introduce geometric sequences of two types and show some properties of interleaved sequences of the geometric sequences of two types. These interleaved sequences have the balance property and double the period of the geometric sequences by the interleaved structure. Moreover, we show correlation properties and linear complexity of the interleaved sequences. A key of our observation is that the second type geometric sequence is the complement of the left shift of the first type geometric sequence by halfperiod positions.</p>
