I reached the characters limit on my previous reply. Thoughts on the method, please?

comment Good entropy source for generating openssl keys
Thank you very much for your insightful reply. Maybe I am paranoid, but I don't want to fully trust haveged as single entropy source. I don't have a links collections now, but I'm sure I stumbled across some articles (including here on stackexchange) which were not too positive on haveged. Therefore, I'd prefer to use haveged with other sources - just in case haveged turns out to be flawed someday. OpenSSL can use multiple entropy files with the -rand ( -rand file1:file2:file3 etc) parameter, so it would be easier this way to provide it some good/tested (rngtest, ent) sources to seed its RNG.
