ICMC16: Finding Random Bits for OpenSSL
Denis Gauthier, Oracle OpenSSL provides entropy for the non FIPS case, but not for the FIPS case. BYOE - Bring your own entropy, if you're running in FIPS mode. OpenSSL gets its entropy from /dev/urandom, /dev/random, /dev/srandom, but since /dev/urandom do...
