Mike Drob commented on HBASE-19164:
-----------------------------------

Yea, that's probably sufficient.

Maybe make a helper method in HBaseTestUtil for it?

> We have a lot of places in our test code where we use {{UUID.randomUUID}} to generate
table names or paths for uniqueness. Unfortunately, this uses up a good chunk of system entropy,
since Sun chose that random UUID's should use the NativePRNGBlocking implementation.
> We don't need to block on entropy for random bits to pick a random table name in a test,
so we can use something that doesn't strain the system too much - secure random can be a source
of problems on some VM or containers.
