Randomness and entropy¶
Describe the following problematics:
Standard random utilities.
Entropy sources available from a thox computer.
How pseudorandom can be used to extend the number of bytes generated using a given entropy.
Reformulate elements from the OneOS protocols page:
By default, this utility requires a seed set using
math.randomseed(), which “sets the seed of the random number generator to a value very likely to be distinct from any other invocation of this constructor”, currently System.nanoTime().
