The Window.crypto property returns the Crypto object associated to the global object. This object allows web pages access to certain cryptographic related services. Although the Window.crypto property itself is read-only, all of its methods (and the methods of its child object, SubtleCrypto) are not read-only, and therefore vulnerable to attack by polyfill.


var cryptoObj = window.crypto || window.msCrypto; // for IE 11


Using the Window.crypto property to access the getRandomValues() method.


genRandomNumbers = function getRandomNumbers() {
  var array = new Uint32Array(10);
  var randText = document.getElementById("myRandText");
  randText.innerHTML = "The random numbers are: "
  for (var i = 0; i < array.length; i++) {
    randText.innerHTML += array[i] + " ";


<p id="myRandText">The random numbers are: </p>
<button type="button" onClick='genRandomNumbers()'>Generate 10 random numbers</button>
