pollinate

seed the pseudo random number generator

Description

This client will connect to one or more Pollen (entropy-as-a-service) servers over an (optionally) encrypted connection and retrieve a random seed over HTTP or HTTPS. This is particularly useful at the first boot of cloud images and in virtual machines, to seed a system's random number generator at genesis, and is intended to supplement the /etc/init.d/urandom init script. It can be used on physical machines, as well, to supplement the seeding of the pseudo random number generator.
