From af3b530773231f8cff6548e36962ad1f25e38c5d Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001
From: Evan Hunt <each@isc.org>
Date: Thu, 28 Sep 2017 10:09:22 -0700
Subject: [PATCH] completed and corrected the crypto-random change
4724. [func] By default, BIND now uses the random number
functions provided by the crypto library (i.e.,
OpenSSL or a PKCS#11 provider) as a source of
randomness rather than /dev/random. This is
suitable for virtual machine environments
which have limited entropy pools and lack
hardware random number generators.
This can be overridden by specifying another
entropy source via the "random-device" option
in named.conf, or via the -r command line option;
however, for functions requiring full cryptographic
strength, such as DNSSEC key generation, this
cannot be overridden. In particular, the -r
command line option no longer has any effect on
dnssec-keygen.
This can be disabled by building with
"configure --disable-crypto-rand".
