Intel Secure Key Entropy Source

Hello,

The following doc states the following in section 3.2.1.

https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/4d/91/DRNG_Software_Implementation_Guide_2.0....

"The ES runs asynchronously on a self-timed circuit and uses thermal noise within the silicon to output a random stream of bits at the rate of 3 GHz. "

The doc doesn't describe how the entropy source works.  How are these features of the entropy source measured and how do they contribute to entropy?

Thanks,

Eric

The discussion of keys and entropy is beyond the scale of Biz client forum.  Please contact your Intel representative for more information or try communities.intel.com
