Mark ab/7061308 as merged in stage. Bug: 180401296 Merged-In: I475d495d166ac15e43c80f179f7d89899cd484dc Change-Id: I1ac7d1228674cfc4bf1147b7c3caca1eb28e1afb
A cryptographically secure random number generator that uses the ChaCha algorithm.
ChaCha is a stream cipher designed by Daniel J. Bernstein[^1], that we use as an RNG. It is an improved variant of the Salsa20 cipher family, which was selected as one of the “stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption” by eSTREAM[^2].
The RNGs provided by this crate are implemented via the fast stream ciphers of the
[^1]: D. J. Bernstein, ChaCha, a variant of Salsa20
no_std compatible when disabling default features; the
std feature can be explicitly required to re-enable
std support. Using
std allows detection of CPU features and thus better optimisation.
