What is it?
In sort libprngwrap enhances the PRNGs from libc. libprngwrap replaces the [s]rand, [s]random and [*]rand48 library calls with functions that get random values from /dev/urandom. This is supposed to be more secure.
One could, for example, use the LD_PRELOAD environment variable or add the complete path to this librarty to /etc/ld.so.preload. In the last case, every program on your system will use this wrapper.
2.0.0 compatibility fixes, also implement al re-entrant PRNG functions from libc
1.0.2 fixed some cases where it would return values out of range
1.0.0 initial release
- audio-entropyd adds entropy bits (random bits) to the /dev/random device. it gets them from a (spare) audio device
- video-entropyd adds entropy bits (random bits) to the /dev/random device. it gets them from a (spare) video4linux device (e.g. a webcam or tv-card)
- monitoring kernelentropy buffer with MRTG - verify if your /dev/random devices gets emptied
