All data traffic between the game servers and our customers is encrypted, so you do not need to worry about submitting potentially sensitive data such as credit card numbers etc. The state-of-the-art industry standard OpenSSL framework is used for secure SSLv3/TLSv1 communication channels to and from our game system as it is seen as the most stable security framework currently available and being rested and updated frequently.
To insure a secure gaming environment is of utmost importance to us. Sophisticated measures are in effect for backgammon as well as poker in order to ensure a fair game and to prevent collusion. We have both a collusion detection strategy poker as well as we monitor each individual backgammon session in order to keep out cheaters.
At FrogPoker we use the best random number generator available on the market for the gaming industry. The Swedish SG 100 device is in use exclusively for backgammon. It uses the physical effect of a hardware diode and hence generates dice rolls that are truly random by nature. Consequently, no predication of upcoming rolls is possible since they are generated right on our server and sent to our players in an encrypted form that makes it impossible for players to modify them.
Several statistical results confirming the true randomness of the SG100 output are available on the manufacturer's website.
For poker we use the ISAAC pseudo random number generator (PRNG) instead of the SG100 that is implemented in our backgammon server. The name ISAAC is an acronym for Indirection, Shift, Accumulate, Add, and Count. It was designed by Bob Jenkins in 1996 and is considered cryptographically secure. To date, no known attacks have become known that affect the practical security of ISAAC. More information can be found on the official ISAAC website.
For the shuffling of our poker cards we make use of the random numbers generated by ISAAC. Furthermore, at FrogPoker the Knuth shuffle algorithm is is our method of choice. Allegations about biased shuffles can be discarded, in fact the opposite is the case. Along with a reliable random number source (such as ISAAC) the Knuth shuffle generates completely unbiased results.
