ekeyd-egd-linux

Transfers entropy from an EGD to the Linux kernel pool

Variants:
This utility reads from an EGD capable service over TCP and writes the entropy retrieved to the Linux kernel random pool. Typically this will be used on clusters or virtual hosts where direct access to useful entropy is hard.

Entropy Key - EGD -> Linux Daemon
=================================

In today's world of virtualised and "cloud" computing, entropy becomes
more and more difficult to get to the virtual hosts which need it the
most.  With advancements in attack techniques; along with the
associated security enhancements inherent in operating systems; the
need for more entropy on even the simplest of hosts is incre

Entropy Key - EGD Protocol
==========================

The EGD (Entropy Gathering Daemon) program defined a simple byte-based
protocol for retrieving entropy from a daemon.  The protocol is run
over stream sockets, either UNIX domain sockets, or TCP sockets.  The
Entropy Key software can provide sockets which act in the same way in
order to allow software compatible with EGD to retrieve high quali
