Re: Source of Randomness in Fabric

In security related stuff I believe thatcrypto/rand is used, which I think simply reads from /dev/urandomwhile I think that some places in the code that just want to select random nodes to connect to might use math/rand, it depends on the use case.

Hi Fabric Experts,
 
I was exploring the codebase for sources of randomness in Fabric codebase for a client's Production system release.
Could anyone point me out the source files where random numbers are generated, and what is the source of it?
