/******************************************************************************
 *  Compilation:  javac SecureShuffle.java

 *  Dependencies: StdOut.java StdIn.java

 *  Reads in a list of strings and prints them in random order.
 *  Our shuffling algorithm guarantees to rearrange the elements
 *  in uniformly random order, under the assumption that nextDouble()
 *  in SecureRandom generates independent and uniformly distributed
 *  numbers between 0 and 1.
