Projects / Arandomd


Arandomd is a network daemon that provides statistically tested output from a single ARC4 stream cipher generator to anyone able to connect to its listening TCP port. As multiple consumers cause it to reseed itself from a separate, strong random source, it is expected to produce consistently unpredictable results for cryptographic purposes. A configurable number of tests from the Statistical Test Suite for Random and Pseudorandom Number Generators must be passed before output data is sent to the client. It may be be useful in low-entropy environments, such as compute clouds, for generating high quality key material for strong cryptography.
