i've had a look at the j2se 1.4 documentation for both SecureRandom [] and related methods such as setSeed.

This is in the context of setting a standard on the quality of a number of crypto programming activities which rely on a good quality source of randomness.

Does anyone know exactly [i.e., other than it being something to do with the system time] what the jvm uses as a source of entropy??
