SYNOPSIS


.Cd "device rndtest"

DESCRIPTION

The rndtest driver ""hooks up"" to hardware crypto devices to monitor the entropy data passed to the random(4) subsystem. This data is periodically tested for FIPS 140-2 compliance and statistics are collected. If the harvested entropy fails any of the FIPS test suite, then it is discarded and testing is continuously applied until ""good data"" is received from the device. Failures are optionally reported on the console.
