RAND(1)                             OpenSSL                            RAND(1)



NAME
       rand - generate pseudo-random bytes

SYNOPSIS
       openssl rand [-out file] [-rand file(s)] [-base64] [-hex] num

DESCRIPTION
       The rand command outputs num pseudo-random bytes after seeding the random number
       generator once.  As in other openssl command line tools, PRNG seeding uses the file
       $HOME/.rnd or .rnd in addition to the files given in the -rand option.  A new
       $HOME/.rnd or .rnd file will be written back if enough seeding was obtained from
       these sources.

OPTIONS
       -out file
           Write to file instead of standard output.

       -rand file(s)
           Use specified file or files or EGD socket (see RAND_egd(3)) for seeding the
           random number generator.  Multiple files can be specified separated by a OS-
           dependent character.  The separator is ; for MS-Windows, , for OpenVMS, and :
           for all others.

       -base64
           Perform base64 encoding on the output.

       -hex
           Show the output as a hex string.
