A cryptographically secure random number generator that uses the ChaCha algorithm.
ChaCha is a stream cipher designed by Daniel J. Bernstein[^1], that we use as an RNG. It is an improved variant of the Salsa20 cipher family, which was selected as one of the “stream ciphers suitable for widespread adoption” by eSTREAM[^2].
