The Intel® Security Driver provides software applications the ability to access the Firmware Hub's hardware Random Number Generator (RNG). Random numbers are a fundamental building block for strengthening and securing the confidentiality of electronic communications. They are a key element of cryptography, digital signing, security protocols, and other enablers of trusted, connected computing.
The Intel® RNG provides a convenient and inexpensive way for applications that employ encryption, digital signatures, and other such mechanisms to increase the strength of their security.
Below are the latest releases of the Intel® Security Driver. For previous releases, see the Intel® Security Driver Archive page.
