rng-tools

Daemon to use a Hardware TRNG

Variants:
The rngd daemon acts as a bridge between a Hardware TRNG (true random number generator) such as the ones in some Intel/AMD/VIA chipsets, and the kernel's PRNG (pseudo-random number generator).

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
