comment Unit testing a library RNG and its seeding for practical security
@JeffreyGoldberg: FIPS-140 requires RNGs to undergo "continuous output tests", generally meaning that an output block is compared to the previous output block and an error is raised if they are identical. This requirement may be applied to the entropy-gathering function itself that seeds an RNG, depending on how the entropy-gathering function is defined and constructed. (In my case the entropy-gathering process was deemed an RNG itself and required to undergo the continuity test.)
