SubjectRe: [PATCH] hwrng: bcm2835: set quality to 1000
From
Date
Hi Andrew,

I ran rngtest and this is what I got:
root@OpenWrt:/# cat /dev/hwrng | rngtest -c 1000
rngtest 6.10

rngtest: starting FIPS tests...
rngtest: bits received from input: 20000032
rngtest: FIPS 140-2 successes: 996
rngtest: FIPS 140-2 failures: 4
rngtest: FIPS 140-2(2001-10-10) Monobit: 0
rngtest: FIPS 140-2(2001-10-10) Poker: 0
rngtest: FIPS 140-2(2001-10-10) Runs: 1
rngtest: FIPS 140-2(2001-10-10) Long run: 3
rngtest: FIPS 140-2(2001-10-10) Continuous run: 0
rngtest: input channel speed: (min=146.002; avg=349.394;
max=1302083.333)Kibits/s
rngtest: FIPS tests speed: (min=12.126; avg=22.750; max=23.432)Mibits/s
rngtest: Program run time: 56826982 microseconds

996 successes and 4 failures -> 99.6% success rate
1024 * 99.6% = 1019 (rounded down to 1000)

I'm not sure if I can rely on rngtest for that...

Best regards,
Álvaro.
