entropy: A platform independent entropy source

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

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

Readme for entropy-0.3.4

[back to package description]

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.

This package supports Windows, {li,u}nix, QNX, and has preliminary support for HaLVM.
