Subject [jira] [Commented] (RNG-19) System generator (/dev/random)
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2016 13:42:20 GMT

Gilles commented on RNG-19:
---------------------------

bq. Commons RNG provides implementations of pseudo-random numbers generators

Excerpt from the "Overview" page (RC2 web site).

There will be practical problems when assuming that the API can be an interface to _external_
implementations.

To make this a constructive discussion, we should now set up "Commons RNG Utils"; it will
let us see more clearly what fits where and why.

Commons RNG, as a component, should not go down the CM path.

> Commons RNG could include a random number generator based on the output of /dev/random
or /dev/urandom on Unix systems.
> Commons Crypto has an implementation that could be used as a starting point:
