video-entropyd is a program to add entropy data from video4linux devices to the kernel random driver.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: This version is now compatible with recent kernels (kernels that export the video4linux2 API).
Release Notes: The previous release would sometimes fail with an error that it could not access the video device.
Release Notes: This version checks the quality of the data it feeds to the /dev/random-device to see if the data is really random. Extra logging has been added.
Release Notes: This version greatly enhances security: data is unbiased before being fed to the entropy buffer of the kernel random device.
Release Notes: This release fixes a major bug where random gibberish was submitted instead of the entropy data.
