Build Status Build Status Latest version [Book API API Minimum rustc version

A cryptographically secure random number generator that uses the HC-128 algorithm.

HC-128 is a stream cipher designed by Hongjun Wu[^1], that we use as an RNG. It is selected as one of the "stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption" by eSTREAM[^2].
