This paper focuses on a pseudorandom number generator called an NTU sequence for use in cryptography. The generator is defined with an m-sequence and Legendre symbol over an odd characteristic field. Since the previous researches have shown that the generator has maximum complexity; however, its bit distribution property is not balanced. To address this drawback, the author introduces dynamic mapping for the generation process and evaluates the period and some distribution properties in this paper.
