Intel® Secure Key

Intel® Data Protection Technology with Secure Key in the Virtualized Environment

The digital random number generator (DRNG) behind Intel® Data Protection Technology with Secure Key provides high-quality random numbers that are accessible via the CPU instruction RDRAND. This easy-to-use feature is of great benefit to virtualized environments where limited system entropy must be divided up among a large number of virtual machines.
