#include <openssl/rand.h> int RAND_egd_bytes(const char *path, int num); int RAND_egd(const char *path); int RAND_query_egd_bytes(const char *path, unsigned char *buf, int num);
RAND_egd_bytes() requests num bytes of randomness from an EGD at the specified socket path, and passes the data it receives into RAND_add(). RAND_egd() is equivalent to RAND_egd_bytes() with num set to 255.
RAND_query_egd_bytes() requests num bytes of randomness from an EGD at the specified socket path, where num must be less than 256. If buf is NULL, it is equivalent to RAND_egd_bytes(). If buf is not NULL, then the data is copied to the buffer and RAND_add() is not called.
OpenSSL can be configured at build time to try to use the EGD for seeding automatically.
RAND_query_egd_bytes() returns the number of bytes read from the daemon on success, or -1 if the connection failed.
