The Infinite Noise TRNG is an open source random number generator. Check the GitHub repository from Bill Cox (waywardgeek) for detailed documentation of the hardware design.

My contributions to the software side of this project are of course included in these builds.
This means, systemd- and udev rules are included for automatic start of the driver when connecting the device. Also its now possible to connect multiple devices to one computer (mainly for testing purposes).

Signed repositories are also available for Ubuntu, CentOS 7 and Raspbian (ARMv7) – see below.
