crypt-default-random-u8vector #!optional procparameter

The default implementation to use by crypt-gensalt as a source of randomly-filled u8vectors. This procedure should accept two integer arguments; a minimum and a maximum length for the u8vector to return. The maximum may also be #f if there is no upper bound.

Defaults to crypt-maximum-random-u8vector. If security is very important, you should probably override it, because the default random procedure provided by Chicken is not very strong, and is even extremely weak on some platforms.
