Peinado et al.
analyzed the security of the J3Gen pseudorandom number generator proposed by Melià-Seguí et al.
, and claimed weaknesses regarding its security properties. They also presented a deterministic attack based on the decimation of the J3Gen output sequences. We show that the assumptions made by Peinado et al.
are not correct and that the proposed deterministic attack against J3Gen does not hold in practice.
