So where does one get entropy if not the ethernet adapter on many
embedded systems? If you have no mouse, no keyboard, no hardware number
generator, just ethernet ports and a serial console that usually
receives no input. While ethernet might not be preferable if you have
something else, sometimes you really don't have anything else.
