perl-math-random-secure 0.080001

Cryptographically secure replacement for rand()

This module is intended to provide a cryptographically-secure replacement for Perl's built-in rand function. "Crytographically secure", in this case, means:

  1. No matter how many numbers you see generated by the random number generator, you cannot guess the future numbers, and you cannot guess the seed.

  2. There are so many possible seeds that it would take decades, centuries, or millennia for an attacker to try them all.

  3. The seed comes from a source that generates relatively strong random data on your platform, so the seed itself will be as random as possible.


Install perl-math-random-secure 0.080001 as follows:

guix install perl-math-random-secure@0.080001

Or install the latest version:

guix install perl-math-random-secure

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
