Struct rand_core::OsRng

source ·
pub struct OsRng;
Expand description

A random number generator that retrieves randomness 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.

This struct is available as rand_core::OsRng and as rand::rngs::OsRng. In both cases, this requires the crate feature getrandom or std (enabled by default in rand but not in rand_core).

§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_core::{RngCore, OsRng};

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