# JitterEntropyPort

Elixir wrapper for `jiterentropy-rngd` by @smuellerDD:

    Using the Jitter RNG core, the rngd provides an entropy source that feeds
    into the Linux /dev/random device if its entropy runs low. It updates
    the /dev/random entropy estimator such that the newly provided entropy
    unblocks /dev/random.

    The seeding of /dev/random also ensures that /dev/urandom benefits from
    entropy. Especially during boot time, when the entropy of Linux is low,
    the Jitter RNGd provides a source of sufficient entropy.

Useful on embedded devices without a TRNG/PRNG support.

Requires the `jitter` module in the Linux kernel is loaded or compiled in.

More info here:

## Kernel Config

Enable the jitter entropy module using menuconfig, or modify the Linux kernel config by setting:


If the `jitterentropy` needs loaded as a kernel module set in your config.exs:

    config :jitter_entropy_port, :load_module, true

## Installation

If [available in Hex](, the package can be installed
by adding `jitter_entropy_port` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

def deps do
    {:jitter_entropy_port, "~> 0.1.0"}
