haveged in a docker container

because entropy matters

options when /dev/random blocks

read these:

make /dev/random behave like /dev/urandom

This one is taken from StackExchange

perform as root:

rm /dev/random
mknod /dev/random c 1 9

want some noise?

If you ever missed some entropy (e.g. when cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail < 100), and rm /dev/random is too weird for you, you probably considered generating some noise.

A tool like haveged helps.

Run like this:

docker run --rm -it --privileged --device /dev/urandom:/dev/random gesellix/haveged
