twuewand, a truerand algorithm for generating entropy

twuewand is software that creates hardware-generated random data. It accomplishes this by exploiting the fact that the CPU clock and the RTC (real-time clock) are physically separate, and that time and work are not linked.

Download

twuewand should work on any computer with Perl 5.6.0 or later. It has been tested on Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Windows (with Strawberry Perl).

Development

twuewand development is managed with git, and is pushed to GitHub, where patches and merge requests are accepted.
