    Name

    FC_SeedRandom() - mix additional seed material into the random number generator.

    Syntax

    CK_RV FC_SeedRandom(
      CK_SESSION_HANDLE hSession,
      CK_BYTE_PTR pSeed,
      CK_ULONG usSeedLen
    );
    

    Parameters

    hSession
    [in] session handle.
    pSeed
    [in] pointer to the seed material
    usSeedLen

    Description

    FC_SeedRandom() mixes additional seed material into the token's random number generator. Note that FC_SeedRandom() doesn't provide the initial seed material for the random number generator. The initial seed material is provided by the NSS cryptographic module itself.


    A user may call FC_SeedRandom() without logging into the token (to assume the NSS User role).
