CONFIG_ENTROPY_DEVICE_RANDOM_GENERATOR

Use entropy driver to generate random numbers

Type: bool

Help

Enables a random number generator that uses the enabled hardware entropy gathering driver to generate random numbers. Should only be selected if hardware entropy driver is designed to be a random number generator source.
