virtual void Botan::RandomNumberGenerator::add_entropy ( const byte  input[],
size_t  length 
pure virtual

Incorporate some additional data into the RNG state. For example adding nonces or timestamps from a peer's protocol message can help hedge against VM state rollback attacks. A few RNG types do not accept any externally provided input, in which case this function is a no-op.

Incorporate entropy into the RNG state then produce output. Some RNG types implement this using a single operation, default calls add_entropy + randomize in sequence.

Use this to further bind the outputs to your current process/protocol state. For instance if generating a new key for use in a session, include a session ID or other such value. See NIST SP 800-90 A, B, C series for more ideas.

void Botan::RandomNumberGenerator::randomize_with_ts_input ( byte  output[],
size_t  output_len 

This calls randomize_with_input using some timestamps as extra input.

For a stateful RNG using non-random but potentially unique data as the additional_input can help protect against problems with fork, VM state rollback, or other cases where somehow an RNG state is duplicated. If both of the duplicated RNG states later incorporate a timestamp (and the timestamps don't themselves repeat), their outputs will diverge.
