You have a point, but after the last few days worth of NSA revelations I don't think anyone that isn't seriously paranoid is thinking carefully enough. I know bugger all about the implementation of Linux's random, but my question is simply this: what are the consequences if an attacker were able to manipulate rdrand at will? If the answer is not nothing, well, something needs tackled.

Comment Re:Truecrypt Re:Not much worry with a source build (Score 1) 472

There was some discussion on this on Schneier's blog re the NA decryption story. Halfway down the (very erudite) thread this is discussed. The originally leaked PDF is an April's Fool joke but it was based on a real one, now missing. Some further discussion ensued on the security of Truecrypt, sufficiently interesting to make me doubt it.
