comment Are there any Javascript CSPRNGs?
Your question is not clear: you say you want a CSPRNG, and then you talk about an entropy source. Do you need a CSRNG (unpredictable, i.e. at least seeded with a sufficient entropy source), or a CSPRNG (i.e. deterministic, but predictable only by knowing the secret seed)?
