    I'm testign some PRNGs using the following tests which I'm coding myself.
    1.frequency test
    2.Serial test
    3. Poker test
    4. Runs test
    5. Autocorrelation test
    Is this enough to establish if a PRNG is a Cryptographically Suitable PRNG or not? What additional test(s) should I add to establish if the PRNGs are CSPRNGs. I'm trying to make this as simple as possible bearing in mind that I want results which indicate if my PRNGs are cryptographically suitable but the tests dont necessarily have to clonclusively prove this.
    Are my tests listed above of the type which would be used for testing CSPRNGs?
