On the other hand, with all this virtual environments we use today, and the lack of detail on the message, you feel helpless: Where is my entropy? How do you start SSH on boot? If Ubuntu cared about user experience, then they'd work with the gnupg group to find a better solution to this issue. It really doesn't matter that there are options, because at least one of them is an entirely reasonable response to a catastrophic failure such as file descriptor exhaustion - a more have a peek at these guys

To contrast, the attack djb describes where malicious entropy is inserted into whatever channels exist for this, is not only possible to attackers today, but is generally applicable: it will work Yes, in theory this is handled by properly checking all error conditions But in practice, we all know that such checks are not always done. Jon Stevens (latchkey-gmail) wrote on 2012-04-25: #20 It is people like you that make novices hate computers. Because /dev/urandom is not a source of entropy and can not be relied upon for any serious business.
It initializes the entropy pool very early in the boot process, and works hard to populate it as quickly as possible However, on some system, there just isn't much randomness around, The source or the n2rng driver, random(7D), kcf and swrand were available as part of OpenSolaris. Similar to the kernel space there are pkcs11_get_nzero_random() and pkcs11_get_nzero_urandom() variants that ensure none of the bytes are zero. Centos 7 Haveged the discrete logarithm problem for an elliptic curve group.
The n2rng driver provides the interface between the hyper-privilged access to the RNG registers on the CPU and KCF.

Reads from /dev/random just block when it judges that the entropy it can deliver has been stretched too thin. What Is Rngd Blogs world wide would be saying "Ubuntu generates insecure GPG keys."

Then people like the NSA sniff carrier signals, such as TCP sequence numbers. "However, where he relies on the line that 'we can figure out how to use a single key It xors the input into srndpool without touching the pointers, so although it changes subsequent output from the pool, no new entropy is added by this call. 2.6.2 n2rng random provider Unable To Open File: /dev/tpm0 Why?

Right, but neither of those numbers can be counted to by computers in our universe in its lifetime, so the distinction is not important from a security perspective. (If you are http://softwaredevelopercertification.com/unable-to/wget-warning-cannot-verify-certificate.php Not the answer you're looking for? On initial attach the fips_rng_post() function is run. If no providers are configured no randomness can be returned and a message logged informing the administrator of the mis-configuration. 2. /dev/random We periodically collect random bits from providers which are Centos Rngd
Thus, installation of rng-tools, fails to start the rngd daemon... I let it sit for *hours* and nothing happened. all I need f*cking keys for is to sign debians which are behind a f*cking firewall so that I don't have to deal with the f*cking 'this package isn't signed' warning. check my blog So the article is not mistaken.

Rngd Can't Open Any Entropy Source The 256-bit entropy for the initialization and reseed is obtained from the getentropy(2) system call. What is this line of counties voting for the Democratic party in the 2016 elections?
If you go back and read ALL of the comments, I think you'll note that I'm not requesting that things are made less secure, but that things are secured correctly.
I have also been looking through logs.. The attacker gets access to a crash dump.

Update 2013-09-12 I was asked about how this applies to Illumos: To the best of my knowledge [ I have not read the Illumos source the following is based on what There's a lot of people out there who just don't know what they're talking about when it comes to crypto and they should be ignored just as much as this bug fips_random_inner(uint32_t *key, uint32_t *x_j, uint32_t *XSEED_j)It computes a new random value, which is stored in x_j; updates XKEY.XSEED_j is additional input.In principle, we should protect XKEY, perhaps by placing it in http://softwaredevelopercertification.com/unable-to/vfs-cannot-open-root-device-hda3-or-unknown-block-2-0.php Also, like Jon, I'm sitting here for minutes (hours?) waiting.
If it is all cached this would allow you generate disk access bypassing the cache: dd if=/path/to/large/file of=/dev/null iflag=direct Personally I would suggest that you generate GPG keys *locally* where it's Last edited: Jul 2, 2008 AusHell, Jul 2, 2008 #7 AusHell New Member This is the latest paste of the mailog file.. /var/log/mailog Code: Jul 2 11:12:06 assasrv02 postfix/postfix-script: starting the Top gkdsp Posts: 16 Joined: 2012/02/15 20:40:20 Re: how to increase entropy in Centos 6.2? Since disk seeks have much less entropy than say a random mouse or keyboard input, this is why it takes forever to generate any output. /dev/random is designed with entropy measurement
It likely gives "good enough" randomness and will keep your random pool full at all times. Also, note that shutting down the service is a DoS that is also to the advantage of the bad guy And yet, no other program under the sun avoids DoS attacks Join them; it only takes a minute: Sign up Here's how it works: Anybody can ask a question Anybody can answer The best answers are voted up and rise to the that has been a problem for various cryptosystems in the past.

They don't need amateurs trying to tell them how to do crypto.
The until loop is infinite, so remember to break it once the key is generated. Jon Stevens (latchkey-gmail) wrote on 2012-02-20: #12 Wow Marc, I'm not going to repeat the discussion above, but clearly you haven't read it. Before returning from the whole function the local state is zero'd out and the per magazine lock released. 5.0 Randomness for key generation For asymmetric key generation inside the kernel a The only issue with generating it remotely is that it's harder to generate external entropy when you do not have physical access to the machine.
The random bits are maintained in a cache and it is used for high quality random numbers (/dev/random) requests. However there is absolutely something wrong with the way entropy is captured for REMOTE sessions. As a result he broke thousands of keys across the Internet and severely embarrassed the Debian developers. It does this for each max_ncpus magazine.
