Accepted Talks:

An opportunity to meet the members of the Debian Technical Committee who are in attendance at Debconf, hear the status of open issues, and discuss pending and future issues with the committee.


Bdale and Keith have been working on the design of an inexpensive yet robust, completely open design, hardware random number generator. At Debconf in Portland two years ago, Tom Marble gave a talk about the earliest prototypes and then state of the project. Happily, we now have a design we consider worthy of taking to production. This talk will describe the hardware design, kernel device driver, and current production status of Chaoskey.
