  4 ╬╝rngd is OpenWrt's micro non-physical true random number generator based on
  5 timing jitter.
  6 
  7 Using the Jitter RNG core, the rngd provides an entropy source that feeds into
  8 the Linux /dev/random device if its entropy runs low. It updates the /dev/random
  9 entropy estimator such that the newly provided entropy unblocks /dev/random.
 10 
 11 The seeding of /dev/random also ensures that /dev/urandom benefits from entropy.
 12 Especially during boot time, when the entropy of Linux is low, the Jitter RNGd
 13 provides a source of sufficient entropy.
