Entropy Broker RNG 2.0

Entropy Broker RNG 2.0
Posted Oct 30, 2012
Authored by Folkert van Heusden | Site vanheusden.com

Entropy Broker is an infrastructure for distributing cryptographically secure random numbers (entropy data) from one or more servers to one or more clients. Entropy Broker allows you to distribute entropy data (random values) to /dev/random devices from other systems (real servers or virtualised systems). It helps preventing that the /dev/random device gets depleted; an empty /dev/random-device can cause programs to hang (waiting for entropy data to become available). This is useful for systems that need to generate encryption keys, run VPN software or run a casino website.

Changes: Entropy broker is now fully multi-threaded so that no client can block the broker, and higher bitrates can now be achieved. The OpenSSL dependency has been replaced by the crypto++ library. A 'configure' script has been added. This release has been checked for software defects with Coverity. The network protocol has been adapted for bigger block sizes. Ciphers/hashes are now fully user selectable. There is reduced broker entropy usage.
