13th Annual Computer Security Applications Conference, ACM Press, December 1997, pp. 227-230.

ABSTRACT: We examine the problem of putting a casino on the Internet. We discuss fairly generating random bits and permutations for use in casino games, protecting against player/player and player/dealer collusions, and ensuring a secure audit trail that both the player and dealer can use to ensure payment of debts. We conclude with a series of open problems.
