Entropy Broker is an infrastructure for distributing cryptographically secure
random numbers (entropy data) from one or more servers to one or more clients.
It allows you to distribute entropy data (random values) to /dev/random
devices from other systems (real servers or virtualised systems).
It helps preventing that the /dev/random device gets depleted; an empty
/dev/random-device can cause programs to hang (waiting for entropy data to
become available).
This is useful for systems that need to generate encryption keys, run VPN
software or run a casino website. Also virtual systems that have no good
sources of entropy like virtual servers (e.g. VMware, XEN and KVM (although
KVM has the virtio_rnd driver)).
Entropy Broker is an infrastructure consisting of client-daemons that fill
/dev/random and server-daemons that feed the central entropy broker-server.
The server-daemons can gather random values by measuring timer frequency
noise, analysing noise from a unused audio-device, noise from a video source
(webcam, tv-card) and random values from a real hardware RNG (random number
generator).

Changelog

2017-03-01 - Thorsten Alteholz <debian@alteholz.de>
entropybroker (2.8-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* fix for correct handling of ppoll (Closes: #856187)
2016-10-08 - Thorsten Alteholz <debian@alteholz.de>
entropybroker (2.8-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* don't build server_cycle_count (Closes: #840018)
It uses a CPU register as source for entropy that is not available 
on all architectures)
* replace constant 8lu by (size_t)8 (Closes: #840019)
sizeof operator returns a constant with type std::size_t, which
is not unsigned long on all architectures
* take care of unavailable constants (Closes: #840020)
sparc64 does not know some baudrates
* thanks a lot to Aaron M. Ucko for his suggestions to solve
these bugs
2016-10-04 - Thorsten Alteholz <debian@alteholz.de>
entropybroker (2.8-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* initial upload (Closes: #545148)
