Subject: [PATCH resend 0/2] random: Use DRBG sources
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 14th April 2014 15:49:58 UTC (over 2 years ago)
[Resent because I forgot to email lkml.  This also surreptitiously
 fixes a silly typo on a patch description.]

This is my attempt to come up with a workable way to use so-called
entropy sources like a TPM to feed /dev/urandom.

Arguably we should be feeding the input pool as well, but if the
/dev/random algorithm is correct, this shouldn't matter.  I don't want
sensible use of TPMs for /dev/urandom to block on a long debate about
/dev/random, so these patches have no effect on /dev/random.

Andy Lutomirski (2):
  random: Add add_drbg_randomness to safely seed urandom from crypto hw
  tpm,random: Call add_drbg_randomness after selftest
