Docker Haveged is a container as an entropy gathering service.

Haveged Version: 1.9.1-1

Use case

In case you need an entropy gathering service on your docker host but don't want to / can't install locally an entropy gathering service.

The service makes more sense on Cloud servers and more specifically on CoreOS servers where you cannot install locally services.


The purpose of the service is to make sure you have available entropy on your host. To check if you are running low:

make show

If the number is below 1000 then it is probably depleted.


To run the container:

docker run --privileged -d joshuacox/havegedocker:latest

or build and run locally:

make run

Test Entropy

In order to test the quality of entropy you can use rngtest

make test

Show the logs

make logs

Enter the container

make enter
