chaosread - read raw noise source from chaoskey
chaosread reads ADC values from the noise source on the attached ChaosKey device.
-s serial | --serial serial This selects a ChaosKey by serial number instead of using the first one found. -l length | --length length Set the amount of data to read. Suffixes 'k', 'M' and 'G' are supported. The default is 1k. -i | --infinite Keep reading forever (or until the process is killed). -b | --bytes Read 16-bits little endian values and write out one byte per sample from bits 1-8 of the sample (zero-based, so shift right by one). -b | --cooked Read values from the 'cooked' endpoint, which is the source used by the kernel driver that contains trimmed and whitened data which has 8 bits of entropy per byte. -b | --raw Read from the raw RNG source endpoint, which is best for testing the hardware on the device. This is the default -b | --firmware Read from the device firmware. This can be used to verify that the firmware in the device has the expected contents.
