      Description

      We have a variety of SecureRandom implementations:

          SHA1PRNG - based on a SHA1 MessageDigest
          NativePRNG - based on /dev/random,urandom
          Windows-PRNG - calls to Microsoft's MSCAPI
          PKCS11 - calls to underlying PKCS11 library

      We might consider adding something more modern like:

      We should also have a look over 90B/C which are in draft state to see if there is anything we can do at our level.
