./security/egd, EGD: Entropy Gathering Daemon

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.8nb8, Package name: egd-0.8nb8, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

This is a perl program to collect entropy from a running Unix-like system,
mostly through various stats calls (vmstat and friends). The output is
hashed into a pool, stirred with an SHA1 hash, and used to provide
(theoretically) high-quality random data to callers over a UNIX- or TCP-
socket interface. This aims to provide functionality similar to the Linux
/dev/random device, but implemented in a fairly-portable user-space daemon
so that it can run on many unix-like systems. See the README for common
usage details.


Required to run:
[lang/perl5] [security/p5-SHA]

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for security category

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package f-prot-antivirus6-fs-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-fs-6.2.3.tar.gz
	Package f-prot-antivirus6-ws-bin: missing distfile fp-NetBSD.x86.32-ws-6.2.3.tar.gz
	Package libidea: missing distfile libidea-0.8.2b.tar.gz
	Package openssh: missing distfile openssh-7.1p1-hpn-20150822.diff.bz2
	Package uvscan: missing distfile vlp4510e.tar.Z

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Bump for perl-5.20.0.
Do it for all packages that
* mention perl, or
* have a directory name starting with p5-*, or
* depend on a package starting with p5-
like last time, for 5.18, where this didn't lead to complaints.
Let me know if you have any this time.

Bump all packages for perl-5.18, that
a) refer 'perl' in their Makefile, or
b) have a directory name of p5-*, or
c) have any dependency on any p5-* package

Like last time, where this caused no complaints.

I hope that's all of them.
