Crypt::Random::Seed version 0.03
========================
Crypt::Random::Seed provides a simple interface to get the strongest source
of randomness on the current platform, typically for use in seeding a CSPRNG
such as Math::Random::ISAAC. It can also be restricted to non-blocking
sources, and has a very simple plug-in method.
The following sources are tried, in order:
Win32 Crypto API
EGD
/dev/random
Crypt::Random::TESHA2
INSTALLATION
To install this module type the following:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
DEPENDENCIES
Win32::API on Windows.
Crypt::Random::TESHA2, only used if /dev/random or Win32 API doesn't work.
SEE ALSO
Crypt::URandom provides similar functionality for non-blocking sources.
For more complex setups, Crypt::Random::Source has multiple plugins.
