Solo Extras

Random number generation

Solo contains a True Random Number Generator (TRNG). A TRNG is a hardware based mechanism that leverages natural phenomenon to generate random numbers, which can be better than a traditional RNG that has state and updates deterministically using cryptographic methods.

You can easily access the TRNG stream on Solo using our python tool solo-python.

Or you can seed the state of the RNG on your kernel (/dev/random).
