A Sequences order cannot be predicted beforehand, but is deterministic

    I need a single word or short phrase that describes the following behavior:

    If I, without any further information, ask for the sequence, its order will look random and cannot be predicted.
    But if I ask a second time I will get the same order as the first time.

    My current explanation is that "the lists order is essentially random, but will stay the same over multiple runs" (coming from an IT-background). This is a bit long and unwieldy and I wonder if there is a shorter version to express this.

    Ideally I could say "the lists order is <...>"
