The entropy package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

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!

Readme for entropy-0.2.2.4

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.
