It tests the data received from the TRNG using the FIPS 140-2 (2002-10-10) tests to verify that it is indeed random, and feeds the random data to the kernel entropy pool.
This increases the bandwidth of the /dev/random device, from a source that does not depend on outside activity. It may also improve the quality (entropy) of the randomness of /dev/random.
A TRNG kernel module such as hw_random, or some other source of true entropy that is accessible as a device or fifo, is required to use this package.
This is an unofficial version of rng-tools which has been extensively modified to add multithreading and a lot of new functionality.
rng-tools, unofficial Debian fork ================================= NOTICE: This is an unofficial version of rng-tools with a lot of added functionality and bugs, for which I assume total blame. Don't bother rng-tools upstream with problems you find in this version of rng-tools. rng-tools unofficial-mt is a living reminder to myself to not modify upstream code without sending the changes upstre more»
