I wondered whether my understanding of entropy is correct, that a 256-bit counter that starts at
0 and counts to
2^256 - 1 by a
+1 increment has a 256-bit entropy.
I am asking this because I felt it awkward that for RNGs, developers often only specify an entropy.
So is it correct that a non-repeating 256-bit counter has 256-bits of entropy, because the numbers are equally distributed in their appearance?
