Hi all,

Just came accross this article, apparently showing the bad quality of
the hardware RNG in Raspberri Pi devices.


Quite interesting since (pseudo-) random numbers are heavily used in
crypto. Interesting also to see another post on this topic, after the
study of a random number generation procedure formerly used in Cryptocat
and that was also problematic.
