Pironio et. al. have showed that Bell’s theorem can certify random numbers .
Uncertainty principle certifies genuine source of intrinsic randomness
Device-independent protocols use nonlocality to certify that they are performing properly.
Device-Independent Randomness Generation in the Presence of Weak Cross-Talk
Introduction – The great advantage of deviceindependent (DI) protocols is their reliance on a small set of tests, which are nevertheless sufficient to certify that they are performing properly.

These observations enable us to certify correctness of the outputs ρ, T , and bAρ of the algorithm.
More on the Power of Randomized Matrix Computations
Random numbers represent an indispensable resource for many applications. A recent remarkable result is the realization that non-locality in quantum mechanics can be used to certify genuine randomness through Bell’s theorem, producing reliable random numbers in a device independent way.
Exploring Quantum Contextuality to Generate True Random Numbers
More specifically, Bell’s theorem can be used to certify genuine randomness.

However, the important difference is that using a swap overlap order we can not certify that we cut each time the current partition when refined by a new row.

Nevertheless, for big values of n, as in the case of Proth numbers, the test is very reliable and, as we will see in the next section, it allows to certify the primality of the numbers that pass it.
A primality test for $Kp^n+1$ numbers
We will now see that for moderately big values of n, the probability that the algorithm does not certify the primality of a prime of the form N = K pn + 1 without choosing more that one base is extremely small and that it decreases with p.
A primality test for $Kp^n+1$ numbers
This is not the case for the test based in Pocklington’s theorem since, regardless the value of n, the use of several bases to certify the primality of N is quite frequent.

The classical algorithm for testing bipartiteness is based on checking whether a pair of short random walks form an odd-length cycle in the graph, thereby certifying non-bipartiteness .

Finally, we show that the observed violations allow one to certify that true random numbers have been created during the experiment.
