IppStatus ippsTRNGenRDSEED_BN(IppsBigNumState*
pRand
, int
nBits
, void*
pCtx
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pRand
Pointer to the output true random Big Number.
nBits
The number of generated true random bits.
pCtx
Pointer to the
IppsPRNGState
context. This pointer is unused and can be
NULL
.
Description
The function generates a true random positive Big Number of the specified
