Fortuna cryptographic random number generator implementation in Go

Fortuna implements the fortuna cryptographic random number generator as designed by Bruce Schneier and Niels Ferguson and described in Cryptography Engineering, N. Ferguson, B. Schneier, T. Kohno, ISBN 978-0-470-47424-2. It was implemented by Marc-Antoine Ruel.

Fortuna is best used in a long living server like a web server, where a lot of unpredictable events occurs and can be used to seed the accumulator. The implementation uses SHA-256 and AES-256 as the primitives.

This package includes all the necessary implementation and a python generator implementation for testing purposes.
