[][src]Struct rand_os::OsRng

pub struct OsRng;
Deprecated since 0.2.2:

OsRng is now provided by rand_core and rand

A random number generator that retrieves randomness from from the operating system.

This is a zero-sized struct. It can be freely constructed with OsRng.

The implementation is provided by the getrandom crate. Refer to getrandom documentation for details.

Blocking and error handling

It is possible that when used during early boot the first call to OsRng will block until the system's RNG is initialised. It is also possible (though highly unlikely) for OsRng to fail on some platforms, most likely due to system mis-configuration.

After the first successful call, it is highly unlikely that failures or significant delays will occur (although performance should be expected to be much slower than a user-space PRNG).

Usage example

use rand_os::rand_core::RngCore;
use rand_os::OsRng;

let mut key = [0u8; 16];
OsRng.fill_bytes(&mut key);
let random_u64 = OsRng.next_u64();


impl OsRng[src]

Deprecated since 0.2.0:

replace OsRng::new().unwrap() with just OsRng

Create a new OsRng.
