[liberationtech] Random number generator failure in Rasperri Pis?

Hi all,

Just came accross this article, apparently showing the bad quality of
the hardware RNG in Raspberri Pi devices.

http://scruss.com/blog/2013/06/07/well-that-was-unexpected-the-raspberry-pis-hardware-random-number-generator/

Quite interesting since (pseudo-) random numbers are heavily used in
crypto. Interesting also to see another post on this topic, after the
study of a random number generation procedure formerly used in Cryptocat
and that was also problematic.

Datalove,
KheOps
