hSession
[in] session handle.
pSeed

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).
