Scdrand systemd service (and Gentoo ebuild)


#1

Hi Folks,

In order to use the Nitrokey Pro’s TRNG, I implemented a stupid systemd unit file (associated to a selfmade Gentoo ebuild) that uses scdrand tool from scdtools:

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/comio/comio-overlay/master/app-crypt/scdtools/files/scdrand.service

To use, after the scdrand installation with suid or CAP_SYS_ADMIN capabilities:

  • copy the previous file into /etc/sysemd/user or /lib/systemd/user or, again, /usr/lib/systemd/user
  • systemctl --user daemon-reload
  • systemctl --user enable scdrand
  • systemctl --user start scdrand

You can find the complete ebuild package here:

Enjoy

thank you very much. I did a small note here. Please let me know if you see another place where this information might be useful as well.

Kind regards
