Why not just put it on Github?
Sorry for the delay, but I forgot to subscribe to notifications for this thread.
I purchased it via Amazon on May 22, 2018 at this link:
What is the contact information for support?
That did it, thank you!
I’m having problems with the OpenSSL engine.
* openssl rand -engine truerng -hex 16
work as expected, but when i try
* openssl engine -c -t -vvvv truerng

A note that truerng.so is in /usr/local/lib, not /usr/lib64/engines.
I tried copying and pasting the contents of truerng.cnf into /etc/ssl/openssl.cnf, but it didn’t make a difference.
Bump? Are the mods here?
I sometimes get 85xx-86xx depending on the USB port it’s plugged into. But never anything above that. Can anyone please tell me why the voltage is lower than the official numbers 8800-9800, and the effects of it if any?

According to these three links:
…it was once possible for developers to incorporate additional sources of entropy, but this was discontinued in Windows 8 and later, in favor of a TPM.
There are, however, sources of entropy in addition to a TPM (or when a TPM is unavailable). Microsoft is vague as to how these sources are used or to what extent each source is taken into account. It would appear that this is per-application rather than a single /dev/random
Reading those articles, it would seem that a Windows equivalent of rngd, using TrueRNG hardware, could affect entropy per-application in the following ways:
* Incrementing the serial port count by 1
* Occasionally writing random amounts of TrueRNG-generated random bytes to memory (and/or the page file), using a random amount of threads
* Adding one or more TrueRNG-generated nonsense environment variables to the system that occasionally change
* The fact that a program exists doing all this
Something like this would be interesting. Unfortunately it would be tough to prove how/if it has any effect.

To create a B&W image of the same size:
rawtopgm 512 512 < /dev/random | pnmtopng > random.png
Since I bought the Pro model I’ve been editing my favorite old Roguelikes to use /dev/random via getrandom() as that will allow me to use something else instead of/together with /dev/TrueRNG. However, the Web instructions to change the mode of TrueRNG Pro don’t seem to work at all for me, while your program does. Thank you!
