We are pleased to announce Entropy Feeder (ef), a Linux command line utility that makes it even easier to feed random bytes produced by a TL200 to the Linux entropy pool. This utility is now a part of the TL200 Software & Documentation Kit, and can be downloaded here by TL200 users. Once downloaded, the command can be run by simply typing the following in a terminal:

sudo ./ef

When running the ef utility, the availability of random stream can be tested with this command:

sudo dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/null bs=1 count=1000000

The output of this command may look like this:

1000000+0 records in
1000000+0 records out
1000000 bytes (1.0 MB) copied, 8.41315 s, 119 kB/s
