Nearly all crypto and the address randomisation that is part of kernel hardening depend on good random numbers, for Linux on the random(4) driver. Getting it initialised early enough & well enough is an extremely tricky problem. Several people have proposed solutions but AFAIK none are complete and it might benefit from having fresh eyes take a look, especially if you have a good background in crypto or math. Not all discussion is here; other relevant lists include linux-crypto@...r.kernel.org and cryptography@...zdowd.com. People to look for include the maintainer, tytso@....edu, the main person working on the problem here, keescook@...omium.org, two guys who have proposed drive rewrites that partly solve the problem, me and smueller@...onox.de, and one with a lot of excellent comments, jsd@...n.com.
