`pub trait CryptoRng: RngCore { }`

## Expand description

A marker trait used to indicate that an `RngCore`

implementation is
supposed to be cryptographically secure.

*Cryptographically secure generators*, also known as *CSPRNGs*, should
satisfy an additional properties over other generators: given the first
*k* bits of an algorithm’s output
sequence, it should not be possible using polynomial-time algorithms to
predict the next bit with probability significantly greater than 50%.

Some generators may satisfy an additional property, however this is not
required by this trait: if the CSPRNG’s state is revealed, it should not be
computationally-feasible to reconstruct output prior to this. Some other
generators allow backwards-computation and are considered *reversible*.

Note that this trait is provided for guidance only and cannot guarantee suitability for cryptographic applications. In general it should only be implemented for well-reviewed code implementing well-regarded algorithms.

Note also that use of a `CryptoRng`

does not protect against other
weaknesses such as seeding from a weak entropy source or leaking state.
