#include <openssl/rand_drbg.h> int RAND_DRBG_reseed(RAND_DRBG *drbg, const unsigned char *adin, size_t adinlen, int prediction_resistance); int RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_interval(RAND_DRBG *drbg, unsigned int interval); int RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_time_interval(RAND_DRBG *drbg, time_t interval); int RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_defaults( unsigned int master_reseed_interval, unsigned int slave_reseed_interval, time_t master_reseed_time_interval, time_t slave_reseed_time_interval );
RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_interval() sets the reseed interval of the drbg, which is the maximum allowed number of generate requests between consecutive reseedings. If interval > 0, then the drbg will reseed automatically whenever the number of generate requests since its last seeding exceeds the given reseed interval. If interval == 0, then this feature is disabled.
RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_time_interval() sets the reseed time interval of the drbg, which is the maximum allowed number of seconds between consecutive reseedings. If interval > 0, then the drbg will reseed automatically whenever the elapsed time since its last reseeding exceeds the given reseed time interval. If interval == 0, then this feature is disabled.
RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_defaults() sets the default values for the reseed interval (master_reseed_interval and slave_reseed_interval) and the reseed time interval (master_reseed_time_interval and slave_reseed_tme_interval) of DRBG instances. The default values are set independently for master DRBG instances (which don't have a parent) and slave DRBG instances (which are chained to a parent DRBG).
Normally, the entropy input for seeding a DRBG is either obtained from a trusted os entropy source or from a parent DRBG instance, which was seeded (directly or indirectly) from a trusted os entropy source. In exceptional cases it is possible to replace the reseeding mechanism entirely by providing application defined callbacks using RAND_DRBG_set_callbacks().
The reseeding default values are applied only during creation of a DRBG instance. To ensure that they are applied to the global and thread-local DRBG instances (<master>, resp. <public> and <private>), it is necessary to call RAND_DRBG_set_reseed_defaults() before creating any thread and before calling any cryptographic routines that obtain random data directly or indirectly.
