The frandom author has helped me out. He created erandom (economical random). This version is unreleased: http://linuxfromscratch.org/~robert/new/frandom-0.7.tar.gz mknod /dev/erandom c 235 12 It will use /dev/random when the module is loaded to seed frandom. Erandom will use the state of frandom as a seed. No entropy, and its private. The author says there should be no way to predict it (without being root). This patch will use erandom first, if /dev/erandom doesn't exist it will fallback to /dev/urandom, and then to the canary (confermed with strace). http://linuxfromscratch.org/~robert/new/glibc-2.3.3-ssp-2.patch Now I'll start looking at making a sysctl interface for it.
