HPET or High Precision Event Timer is a hardware built-in clock source available in most processors.
I would use the computer to generate CSPRNG and do cryptographic operations.
My question is: Is it better to enable HPET or leave it disabled. How does HPET influence the entropy pool on Linux (and
/dev/urandom)? Will the computer have better entropy with HPET?
Performance is not a problem, I would like a good entropy, and cryptographically secure random numbers.
