This is a pure javascript implementation of deterministic random bit
generators defined in  section 10.1.2 of NIST SP 800-90A.
A  DRBG mechanism uses an algorithm that produces a sequence of bits
from an initial value that is determined by a seed that is determined
from the entropy input. Once the seed is provided and the initial
value is determined, the DRBG is said to be instantiated and may be
used to produce output.
Because of the deterministic nature of the process, a DRBG is
said to producepseudorandom bits, rather than random bits. The seed
used to instantiate the DRBG must contain sufficient entropy to
provide an assurance of randomness. If the seed is kept secret,and the
algorithm is well designed, the bits output by the DRBG will be
unpredictable, up to the instantiated security strength of the DRBG.
Node.js is an event-based server-side JavaScript engine.
