rand_os

Build Status Build Status Latest version Book API API Minimum rustc version

A random number generator that retrieves randomness straight from the operating system.

This crate depends on rand_core and is part of the Rand project.

This crate aims to support all of Rust's std platforms with a system-provided entropy source. Unlike other Rand crates, this crate does not support no_std (handling this gracefully is a current discussion topic).
