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!

Introduction

This package allows Haskell users to easily acquire entropy for use in critical security applications by calling out to either windows crypto api, unix/linux's /dev/urandom, or the RDRAND instruction.
