#22585 new defect

Consider packaging maxwell and adding it to base installation

Reported by: djasa Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Features Paradise
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


OpenWRT runs on devices that are likely to be short on entropy, disk space and RAM space and run on various CPU architectures. Maxwell daemon seems to perfectly fit here by:

  • being as small as possible and producing as good randomness as possible
  • not requiring external programs
  • not requiring any hardware beyond CPU
  • not requiring particular CPU (like haveged - packaged - does)

Because of these properties, it looks like perfect addition to base OpenWRT system to ensure that every system has enough entropy for all its needs.
