TS-7600 RNG

From Technologic Systems Manuals

Because many embedded systems do not have much entropy, we have included a core in the FPGA with a random number generator. On startup, tshwctl is called with the --setrng option to seed Linux's random number generator from the hardware random number generator. Without a good source of entropy, Linux's random number generator will start up in a very predictable state which is undesirable for the security of many cryptography protocols.
