HAVEGE (HArdware Volatile Entropy Gathering and Expansion) is a user-level software unpredictable random number generator for general-purpose computers that exploits modifications of the internal volatile hardware states as a source of uncertainty. It combines on-the-fly hardware volatile entropy gathering with pseudo-random number generation. The internal state includes thousands of internal volatile hardware states and is merely unmonitorable. It can support several hundreds of megabits per second on current workstations and PCs.
