The entropy package

[ Tags: bsd3, cryptography, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

A platform independent method to obtain cryptographically strong entropy (urandom on Linux, CryptAPI on Windows, patches welcome). Users looking for cryptographically strong (number-theoretically sound) PRNGs should see the DRBG package too!
