Official Mirror:
the Bytes::Random::Secure manpage provides two interfaces for obtaining crypt-quality random bytes. The simple interface is built around plain functions. For greater control over the Random Number Generator's seeding, there is an Object Oriented interface that provides much more flexibility. The "functions" interface provides five functions that can be used any time you need a string (or MIME Base64 representation, or hex-digits representation, or Quoted Printable representation) of a specific number of random bytes. There are equivalent methods available via the OO interface. This module can be a drop-in replacement for the Bytes::Random manpage, with the primary enhancement of using a much higher quality random number generator to create the random data. The 'random_bytes' function emulates the user interface of the Bytes::Random manpage's function by the same name. But with Bytes::Random::Secure the random number generator comes from the Math::Random::ISAAC manpage, and is suitable for cryptographic purposes. The harder problem to solve is how to seed the generator. This module uses the Crypt::Random::Seed manpage to generate the initial seeds for Math::Random::ISAAC.
