Entropy as a Service

iOT devices need a reliable source of high quality entropy. If entropy was burned into the chip at OEM, the device could use SOC upon initialization to generate a key known only to the end user. To further enhance the security, the device key could be periodically refreshed using an interface through a browser controlled by the end user. Real Random is the solution to this ticking time bomb!
