comment Is there a “brainwallet” for GPG keys?
This is why the salt for the passphrase is personally identifiable information such as name, social security number, DOB and such. I am aware that it is possible. The question is how anyone done it?

comment Are there any Javascript CSPRNGs?
I mean something published in a peer reviewed journal or a technical whitepaper discussing entropy in the browser. It seems like a fairly rich field of research. For example Guan Et all provided an analysis while discussing pseudo cookies link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-540-88625-9_18

comment Are there any Javascript CSPRNGs?
I'm sorry I just saw a single message mentioning 53 bits of entropy. I'm asking a broader question unless I missed another link

has anyone done an entropy analysis of Js in the browser?

comment Are there any Javascript CSPRNGs?
""Am I really dealing with a random number generator, or with something provided by an attacker?"" You resolve this attack via https and can even have the server sign the code. "First up: I would try to avoid doing any cryptography using javascript… " As much as we'd like to return to the C days, JS is king now and will be for some time. I have to work with the cards I've been dealt.

Not so much in my opinion, I'm asking a broader question than a particular implementation. I'm also concerned about javascript entropy sources.

CodesInChaos, what is the default entropy pool for js? Is it browser based?

comment hardware and software optimizations for Salsa20
The seed is public knowledge and we are using for a proof of work. We selected a CSPRNG both security and randomness. I suppose we could use hardware accelerated AES. My goal is raw speed.

Our goal is to populate blocks of 128 MBs of RAM with noise and my thought process was to simply use a CSPRNG. Salsa20 is a fairly fast. The noise has to be as close to random as possible.
