2017-07-24 Getting a lot more entropy from the Raspberry Pi 7 months ago
On doing some research on randomness in Linux I found out about the rng-tools package which includes rngd which can get randomness from hardware random generators to linux /dev/random. On the main homeserver greenblatt there was no hardware randomness source available, I already use randomsound to generate randomness from audio noise. I found out the Raspberry Pi has a hardware randomness source so I installed rng-tools and rngd was able to use it. The impact on the measured available entropy is quite visible.
