Welcome to the OneRNG

The importance of entropy often goes ignored, especially as you look at the cost of devices that provide entropy. A nice alternative to these is the OneRNG, previously on KickStarter and hopefully soon to be available for general purchase.

I backed the KickStarter campaign and my OneRNG and programmer arrived last week. Verification and installation was very simple, even when you take the slightly more paranoid approach than most.

I currently have the OneRNG connected to a KVM host, however I plan to move it to something else (perhaps a Raspberry Pi 2 or NUC), using Pollen and Pollinate to provide entropy to my internal hosts – perhaps with a few more OneRNGs thrown in for good measure.

You can read more about why entropy is important and how Pollen / Pollinate work here. You can also see the talk given by Jim Cheetham and Paul Campbell at Linux Conf 2015 on the OneRNG below:
