A method, system, and computer program product for random number generation using a network of mobile devices are provided in the illustrative embodiments. From a set of mobile devices, a corresponding set of data packets is received. A presence of raw sensor data is detected in a first data packet received from a first mobile device in the set of mobile devices. The raw sensor data comprises data corresponding to changing value of an output of a sensor in a set of sensors installed in the first mobile device. The raw sensor data is separated from the first data packet, resulting in an original data packet. A first random number is generated using the raw sensor data.
