Type of work:
See the pkg-sysvinit-devel archives, in July and August 2010, for an interesting discussion about random seeds unicity, especially at early boot time.
We should audit such matters in Tails.
- Type of work set to Audit
- Subject changed from random seed to Audit random seed
- Easy set to No

- Related to Feature #7642: Investigate whether we should resume shipping a static random seed added
- Related to Feature #7646: Investigate whether we should ship /var/lib/systemd/random-seed added
Should this be a hole-in-the-roof also?
- Target version set to Hole in the Roof
