An interesting paper how /dev/(u)random could fail

If you really want to make a secure password generator,
always think about how to get enough entropy,
preferably using a trustable hardware true RNG.
(And I suggest you to check your SSH host keys
and SSL/TLS certs as well, at:
(Excuse me that this is not necessarily an Erlang topic,
