AES-PRNG

Build Status Apache2 License 2.0 Minimum rustc version

A Rust library for random number generation using AES as the underlying block-cipher.

Usage

Add this to your Cargo.toml:

[dependencies]
aes-prng = "0.1"

Example

use rand::{RngCore, SeedableRng};
use aes_prng::AesRng;

let mut rng = AesRng::from_random_seed();

// sample random bytes
let mut bytes = [0; 1024];
rng.fill_bytes(&mut bytes);

// sample random u32
let r_u32 = rng.next_u32();

// sample random u64
let r_u64 = rng.next_u64();

AesRng can also be created from an existing seed:

let seed = AesRng::generate_random_seed();
let mut rng = AesRng::from_seed(seed);

Rust version requirements

AES-PRNG requires Rustc version 1.56 or greater due to the RustCrypto dependency.

Crate Features

AES-PRNG is built with the -Ctarget-feature=+aes feature enabled by default to get the benefit of AES-NI instructions for speeding up the PRNG calls.
