createKeyPair function. Random seeds parameter


#1

Hi Jules,
I am generating RSA Keys at the moment. I don’t understand what the random seeds parameter does in the RSAKEy::createKeyPair() function.
You say: “The randomSeeds parameter lets you optionally pass it a set of values with which to seed the random number generation”.
It’s not clear to me. Could you explain it or give an example please?
Thanks

If you need to ask, then you don’t need to use it!

LOL!!!

Here’s one use-case
